COVID-19 Test Requirements for Spring Semester
All faculty, staff, and students are required to get a COVID-19 test on or after January 7, 2021, and must provide evidence of a negative result before circulating on campus for any reason. Students in University Coordinated Quarantine will be contacted by the Tiger Test team regarding the exact date and time of their test.
Acceptable COVID-19 tests include PCR tests on saliva, nasal swabs or nasopharyngeal swabs and Antigen tests on saliva, nasal swabs or nasopharyngeal swabs. Antibody tests are not accepted.
In addition to adhering to RIT COVID-19 test protocols, you must review and adhere to the New York State Travel Advisory Guidelines.
Students: Upload an image of your test results to the Student Health Center using the COVID-19 Test Spring Semester 2021 form available through the Wellness Portal. The image must include your full name, date of birth, and date and type of test. All test results must be uploaded to the portal, whether they are positive or negative.
If you have tested positive within 12 weeks prior to the start of classes (on or after November 2, 2020), you are not required to complete a COVID-19 test. Instead, you are required to upload proof of prior infection and/or your release from isolation letter in lieu of a COVID-19 test.
Employees: Test results should be uploaded to Oracle on or before January 25, 2021. A new, negative COVID-19 test is required even if you work during the holiday break period and/or do not travel outside the Finger Lakes region during the holiday. Employees may report to work without a new negative COVID test or with results-pending through January 24, 2021. Employees should contact their manager with any questions specific to their personal situation. All test results must be uploaded to Oracle, whether they are positive or negative.
If you have tested positive and have uploaded the positive results information into Oracle within 12 weeks prior to the start of classes (on or after November 2, 2020), you are not required to complete a COVID-19 test. You do not need to provide additional documentation. Communication on the release from isolation or quarantine is provided to both you and your supervisor from Rochester Regional Health (RRH).
Scheduling your test: New York state has set up a free testing site at Monroe Community College. Details and registration are available online, or call 888-364-3065 to schedule an appointment. You can also contact your personal health care provider or find other testing locations.
