How to obtain a COVID-19 test via HMS

All persons working in HMS Neurobiology laboratories must be tested via HMS' Color System, even if they are also being tested at other institutions. Color is the third party vendor that coordinates COVID-19 testing at HMS.

To obtain a Color account, you must first be added to the Color eligibility list. Contact Brady Detwiler (bradon_detwiler@hms.harvard.edu) to be added to the testing list, providing the lab you work in and your role. Your lab manager or PI can also do this on your behalf. Once you are added to the Color eligibility, you will be able to create a Color account. Follow the detailed instructions here.
