Huntington Testing Center
A special test involves squirting a mist of saccharin, the artificial sweetener, into a beehive keeper’s-like hood. If the saccharin is tasted, the N95 needs adjusting. Northeastern has performed more than 300 tests since the summer to help keep nursing students and other front-line employees safe from COVID-19.
In order to promote the safety of the Northeastern community, the university has created a separate testing facility on Huntington Avenue for students who exhibit symptoms of the illness. The Huntington Testing Center is where all symptomatic students—including those on co-op—will be tested, upon referral by a medical professional.
