Testing Process to Address Spikes in COVID-19

Through our weekly COVID-19 testing with all residents, we are able to identify spikes in positive cases and quickly target clusters within a residence hall. As we’ve done a few times this semester, when we see higher case counts in a particular location, we are able to partner with UHS to quickly ramp up additional testing for an entire residence hall to find any areas of concern. This helps us take targeted action to limit community spread without restricting an entire building. When these additional rounds of testing are used, they are required just like normal weekly testing. We thank our residents for cooperating with this process, to help us continue with a successful year on campus.
