Dear students, staff and faculty:

We write to share updates to testing center hours and to inform you of reunion precautions for alums and guests. 

Asymptomatic Testing Center Hours

On Monday, May 16, the COVID-19 testing center hours are changing to reflect the reduced campus population. Students, staff and faculty are expected to continue testing twice-weekly at the COVID-19 testing center during the following new hours: 

  • Monday - Thursday: 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. self-collection at the Schacht Center kiosk near the parking lot entrance.  Employees working evening hours may drop self-collection kits off in the self-service box after hours.

  • Monday - Thursday: 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. staffed collection on the first floor of the Campus Center, CC103/104

Optional asymptomatic testing will remain available for all students and employees throughout the summer if the college discontinues mandatory asymptomatic testing.

Symptomatic testing will continue to be available and strongly encouraged for those exhibiting any symptoms related to COVID-19. Self-collected symptomatic test kits for students and employees will be available at the Schacht Center kiosk near the parking lot entrance Monday through Friday until 2 p.m. Instructions will be located at the testing kiosk. 

Guests to Reunion I and Reunion II are required to prove full vaccination status and follow the current mask mandates.

As always, CIRT will closely monitor any changes to public and campus health and adjust protocols accordingly. 
Please contact with any questions.
