December 22, 2020: Winter Break Testing Schedule

Date: December 22, 2020

Subject: Winter Break Testing Schedule

Dear colleagues,

Just ahead of winter recess, I write with a reminder of the testing schedule and a clarification on who should be testing over break.

The schedule for once-weekly COVID testing in Beckham Hall will be adjusted due to the holidays.

  • Testing will take place today, Dec. 22 and Tuesday, Dec. 29 from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.
  • For the month of January, beginning Jan. 6, testing will return to Wednesdays from 7 a.m.­­ to 4 p.m.

Throughout January, testing will be limited only to those positions designated as essential personnel and to those positions that directly support students remaining on campus over break. Other employees should not be testing on campus but will resume testing for the spring semester in early February. Please direct any questions to your supervisor.

As an important reminder, any employee who is experiencing symptoms or believes they may have been exposed to COVID should not come to campus to be tested. Instead, please contact your personal health care provider or get tested at a local drugstore or urgent care center.

Wishing you all a safe and happy holiday.
