Testing Required: Not cleared to return to class until tested

Share on:

Posted on Friday, January 15, 2021

You are receiving this email because you are a non-residential student who has not scheduled your testing time. Hopefully this email helps clear up our expectations.
Do I need to be tested before I return to campus? YES! We are asking you to have a PCR test prior to your return to campus and to upload those results to the Student Health Portal.  You will need to schedule this with a testing center near you.
How long before returning to campus should I be tested ? We are discovering that turnaround times for test results are much longer than anticipated. We recommend that you contact your local testing center and ask how long it will take to get your results. Then schedule far enough in advance that you can a) receive your results AND b) upload them to the Student Health Portal before you return to campus.  Ideally, your test would be no more than 5-6 days before your return.
Do I also need to be tested upon arrival to campus? YES! Please see the link below to schedule your testing appointment and report directly to Old 77. Your testing date is January 12 and you must use the non-residential student link to schedule.
What if I previously tested positive for COVID within the last 90 days? – You do not need to be tested on campus, but you do need to notify the Wellness Center and ensure your results are on file. If you were tested off campus, you’ll need to upload your positive results to the Student Health Portal.
TESTING REQUIRED – You are not permitted to attend class without being tested, unless you have had a positive COVID test within the last 90 days.  Tomorrow and Monday are the last days to sign up for a testing. Please do so immediately.
