Ongoing testing

Surveillance testing continues to be an important part of our overall efforts to prevent widespread COVID-19 transmission among unvaccinated individuals. Any student who is not fully vaccinated or has not provided proof of vaccination is required to take a COVID-19 test twice per week. Students will receive email or text message alerts to schedule their on-campus testing appointments. Students who do not comply with the testing requirement will be referred to the Dean of Students office and may face appropriate disciplinary sanctions.

Employees with an approved vaccine exemption must continue to test once per week. Employees who do not comply with the testing requirement will be referred to Human Resources or Faculty Affairs.

To be fully vaccinated, you must be at least two weeks past receiving your final vaccine dose and appropriate booster shot.

Any asymptomatic student, faculty, or staff member Is also eligible to be tested at the "UScreen / Surveillance" testing sites at any time.
