If you can, please help the Bryan-College Station community by volunteering to help with students’ COVID-19 testing Friday, April 2 on main campus at Rudder Tower. The College of Agriculture and Life Sciences has been chosen to host that test site. About twenty volunteer spots, two or three hours each, are available between 6:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m.
To register as a volunteer:
- Go to https://timecounts.org/tamu-covid-testing/events/31031.
- Quickly set up a volunteer account.
- Scroll to April 2 and choose a time slot at Rudder.
On the next page, there are a few questions and a choice to be contacted about future volunteer opportunities.
If you choose to volunteer for April 2, we ask that you please register by April 1.
Faculty, staff and students are all welcome to volunteer. The volunteers will be physically distanced from those testing, will not need to handle samples and will mostly help with logistics. Individuals can sign up for multiple time blocks.
In the past year, each holiday break has been followed by a spike of COVID-19 cases both locally and nationally. Therefore, after St. Patrick’s Day and Spring Break, Texas A&M University is requiring roughly 40,000 students in Bryan-College Station to test for COVID-19 to reduce potential spread within the community. If you can help with this important undertaking, I encourage you to do so.
