Community Saliva Testing at Hess Hall
Community saliva testing helps us understand the spread of COVID-19, determine whether restrictions can be lifted, preserve the on-campus experience, and protect the safety and health of everyone on campus.
Hess Hall will participate in testing on Tuesday, October 27th, and every resident must provide a saliva sample during the collection period from 7:30am to 11:00am. Student Health Center staff will be waiting in the lobby of Hess Hall to receive your sample.
Testing kits, with instructions on how to collect your sample and enough supplies for three testing events, are available at the front desk of Hess Hall. For this event, you will only need to use one of the included tubes. Barcodes, which must be affixed to the outside of your sample tube, will be delivered to your mailbox. Make sure you put your remaining tubes and barcodes in a safe place for the next testing event in your dorm. An email with more specific instructions will be sent to residents two days prior to their testing day.
Your cooperation with community testing helps us monitor the spread of COVID-19, determine whether restrictions can be lifted, and protect the safety and health of everyone on campus.
Note: Residents of the Kappa Sigma House will also participate in this event and drop off their samples at Hess Hall during the collection period. Testing kits and barcodes can be obtained through the House Director.
