The University of Northern Colorado has partnered with the Weld County Health Department to distribute thousands of fentanyl testing kits to students when needed. The test strips have already been delivered to UNC staff and are already being handed out to students who request them. John Hancock, assistant vice president for wellness and support at the university, said UNC has already handed out hundreds of tests to students who have requested them. The tests are much like a COVID-19 test in the sense that they provide positive, negative or inconclusive results based on the stripes that appear on the testing strip.
