Spring COVID-19 testing update

After more than two years of mass testing on campus, beginning in January 2023, the university will discontinue mass testing and modify infectious disease mitigation strategies to treat COVID-19. This decision is based on the wide availability of COVID-19 vaccinations, boosters and home test kits in the community as well as declining demand for on-campus testing.
