What are spring plans for testing, contact tracing, and isolation and quarantine?
The University’s plans include an augmented testing strategy with required testing for all students prior to their arrival, post-arrival testing within the first two weeks of the semester for all students, on-demand testing for students and on-campus employees, and daily random testing of between 1% and 2% of the University’s population of students and employees living, learning or working on campus as well as those who access campus. This includes all employees who are working on campus and students who are taking in-person classes or living within 20 miles of a campus. The University also is continuing with strategic screening to identify location-based rises in cases, data monitoring, contact tracing, and quarantine and isolation, which reflect new Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommendations.
