Campus Covid-19 Surveillance Testing Begins October 12

Dear Campus Community,

As I shared with you on September 25, Shepherd University will begin COVID surveillance testing on campus. This testing is mandated by the State Government and will take place each week through the end of the semester.  If your name is selected, you are expected to participate.  We will test approximately 250 people per week including students, staff, and faculty.  This represents 10% of the approximate number of individuals physically on campus this semester.

Please review the details below carefully.

IF YOU ARE EXPERIENCING COVID related symptoms, please do not participate in the surveillance testing.  People with symptoms should not come to campus.  Please go to your healthcare provider or a “testing site;” these facilities can safely test people who think they may have COVID-19.  Surveillance testing is to gauge the spread of coronavirus in asymptomatic persons.
