Testing began Thursday and continued Friday. Once you sign in, you go to a station to self swab both nostrils. Once that is complete, you have to sit in a chair socially-distanced from others for about 45 minutes before getting your results. 

Any student living on campus or faculty/staff employed working on campus this semester must be tested and receive a negative test.

A green wrist band indicated you have been tested and are negative for COVID-19.
