UHS is making available a free Coronavirus test to any full-time University student who requests it based on their participation in these recent events.
The University is helping the on-campus community stay safe through testing, screening, surveillance, and contact tracing. This program involves:
- A combination of symptom tracking of all students, faculty, and staff
- Initial testing of all students living on campus, using an established priority order based upon departure location/point of origin and of any symptomatic individuals
- Contact tracing of all positive cases
- Random COVID-19 testing among the student population
Tuesday, September 8, UHS will be offering COVID-19 testing for graduate students and undergraduate students who are living off-campus.
Effective immediately, there is a change to the quarantine guidance for all University students, faculty, and staff arriving in Rochester from an international location.
A COVID-19 test is optional for graduate students living in University housing. Optional testing for all graduate students will be available at UHS.
University health experts will randomly test 300 students for COVID-19 each week as part of a new testing protocol.
On July 23 Provost Rob Clark was joined by medical experts and facilities leaders to discuss topics related to health and safety protocols for the fall.
