University outlines plans to provide end of semester COVID-19 testing
Observer Staff Report | Wednesday, October 7, 2020
The University outlined plans for end of semester COVID-19 testing in an email sent to students Wednesday. Priority for testing appointments will go to students whose home address is in a state or country that requires a test for reentry based on the guidelines at the time.
“Priority will be based on early November state and country requirements and a student’s home address in Banner,” the email said.
The University will halt surveillance testing from Nov. 9 to Nov. 20 to allow for departure testing. During this time period, any student wishing to get a saliva-based test will be able to do so. Diagnostic testing will also continue during this time.
In addition, students who live in an immediate household with an individual at high-risk for the virus should apply for an accommodation through Sara Bea by Oct. 23 to receive priority in scheduling a test, the email said.
