Testing, Monitoring, and Quarantine

Health monitoring is a critical way to understand risks and help prevent disease spread

The University is helping the on-campus community stay safe through testing, screening, surveillance, contact tracing, and quarantine/isolation measures. 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

You can reference the University’s COVID-19 dashboard to see the latest data related to testing results and confirmed cases across all University of Rochester campuses.
