There are three test options available to you.
- Each employee is eligible to order one Quest at-home test.
- There will be a Broad on-campus test clinic by appointment on Feb 2, 3 and 4.
- You may secure a private test, which will be covered for participants of the University medical plan. Private test results, both positive and negative, must be sent to COVIDHR@fairfield.edu.
For those already coming on campus:
Test 1 – You should have already taken at least one test. If you haven’t done so, please test immediately.
Test 2 – Broad on-campus test on Feb 2 ,3 or 4, or take Quest at-home test between Feb 1-Feb 5.
For those coming on campus the week of February 8:
Test 1 – Quest at-home test or a private test approximately 10 days before your return or less.
Test 2 – Broad test on-campus on Feb 2, 3 or 4 or Quest at-home test taken within 5 days of return to campus or a private test taken within 72 hours of your return to campus.
For those coming on campus February 15 or later:
Test 1 – Order the Quest at-home test now, and hold it until approximately 10 days before your return to campus. This test can be ordered up until February 28, 2021.
Test 2 – Private test within 72 hours of your return to campus.
**For those who are coming on-campus you will be expected to test weekly for the remainder of February, and then subsequently may get selected randomly for surveillance testing. Information on future on-campus testing clinics will be forthcoming.**
As a reminder, exempt from testing are employees not coming on-campus at all, and employees who have submitted proof of a positive COVID test result that is within 90 days.
