COVID-19 Testing

Testing information for January 23 is below. Those students who select January 24 ­– 27 will receive a separate email with testing information specific to your selected day.

For Sunday, January 23, Rapid Antigen testing will take place in the Ferguson Recreation Center from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Please note that students who arrive after 4 p.m. will not be accommodated. Staff members from Student Health Services will be on site during move in. All students will be required to remain in the Ferguson Recreation Center until they receive notification via email from Mobile Health that they have tested negative. You may also be asked to show this email once you have returned to your residence hall room, so it is imperative that you not leave the Recreation Center until you have received the notification. It is anticipated that this process will take approximately 30- 45 minutes. If you have tested positive over the winter break you will be required to bring evidence of your positive test to move in (your evidence must contain your name, the date of test, and the result). If you cannot produce your positive test at move-in, you are required to test on-site via Mobile Health. 

As per guidelines from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), students who test positive will need to isolate either on campus or at home for five days from onset of symptoms or test date.
