Last week, the university also announced that its students would have to complete a COVID-19 PCR test within four days prior to move-in, or show documentation of a negative test within the past 90 days.

Texas State said guests are not required to get tested to help with move-in. Free tests will be available at Curative kiosks, with results available in two days. A limited supply of free rapid COVID-19 tests will be available on the Texas State campus between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. from Aug. 15 through Aug. 17.
