Testing & Contact Tracing
We will not be providing on-campus testing services starting Fall 2022. If you are directed to test according to your isolation/quarantine guidelines, you will need to either access a testing center (especially if directed to take a PCR test) or use your own supply of rapid antigen tests. The College will have a limited number of antigen test kits on hand for those students who can verify that they have no other access to testing kits.
Members of the campus community are not required to take a COVID test to gain entry to the College for the start of the Fall 2022 semester.
If the College is alerted to a positive case of COVID-19, the Contact Tracing Team will send an email notification to individuals who may have come into contact with the positive individual, which will contain further instructions.
