University COVID Information
Routine Screening Testing
Screening testing refers to the periodic testing of individuals, regardless of whether they exhibit symptoms of COVID-19. Because people with COVID-19 can show no symptoms at all (asymptomatic), screening testing helps proactively identify COVID-19 cases and reduce further transmission in the community. Screening testing will be provided at no cost to the community.
To prioritize health and safety, all students, faculty, and staff accessing a University campus or facility will have optional screening testing available. Certain groups within the University community may have required weekly testing in accordance with guidance from outside agencies, and further details will be communicated to these groups directly.
