UNCP will be offering blood testing on campus at the UC lawn, starting Wednesday, Sept 16 and ending Saturday, Sept 19. Each day testing will be done from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. The tests are being conducted in partnership with UNC-Chapel Hill’s NC Policy Collaborative and are free to all UNCP staff, faculty and students who are 18 years of age or older. The purpose of this project is to understand the patterns of COVID-19 recovery by measuring the serum (blood) for the presence of an antibody in the population of UNCP and greater Robeson County area.
