WARWICK, RI —  COVID-19 testing at CCRI’s Knight Campus will end at the close of the day Sunday, July 26, then shift to the the Rhode Island Convention Center.

The change follows a similar move of testing at Rhode Island College earlier this week.

Testing at the Rhode Island Convention Center, 114 West Exchange St., Providence, is happening in the parking garage. This will allow testing to happen even during inclement weather. The testing site is a drive-up site.

The access road connecting West Exchange and Sabin Streets is restricted to test site traffic and emergency vehicles only. Because of the low clearance in the garage, trailers, RVs, and other oversized vehicles cannot be accommodated. The site operates Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday through Sunday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Tests are available by appointment only. Like the college testing sites, the Rhode Island Convention Center testing site is for symptomatic people and certain asymptomatic people.

People who are symptomatic can get a test scheduled for them by a healthcare provider.

People who are asymptomatic can schedule a test if they work in a high-contact profession. Examples of people who work in high-contact professions include barbers, child care workers, clergy, cosmetologists, first responders, gym and exercise trainers, healthcare professionals, personal care services (nail technicians, massage therapists, tattoo artists, estheticians, cosmeticians, manicurists, body piercers, and tanning facility staff), public transit drivers, and restaurant workers.

Asymptomatic Rhode Islanders who have recently traveled to a place with an elevated positivity rate can also be tested. To schedule a test, visit portal.ri.gov.

More information about COVID-19 testing, including information on all the different places people can get tested, is available online.
