Up until Fall 2022, Austin Peay State University (APSU) offered free COVID-19 PCR testing for students, faculty, and staff. Now it costs students $10 to get tested (charged to student account). Many students have little to no income and may not be able to afford getting tested, making the $10 charge a deterrent for students to get tested when exposed to someone COVID-19 positive or when they become symptomatic. Since the beginning of the pandemic, Tennessee alone has had over 2,000,000 positive COVID-19 cases, with over 27,000 deaths as of September 22, 2022. Neglecting to provide free COVID-19 tests to students, faculty and staff suggests APSU does not care about the well-being of the APSU community. Signing this petition shows your support that APSU needs to offer FREE COVID-19 testing to students, faculty, and staff to ensure a healthy and safe learning environment.
