Reminder About Missed Appointments

In order to minimize wait times, we strongly encourage you to take your test at your designated appointment time. But we understand that, on occasion, you may have a legitimate reason to miss your appointment. If you miss your appointment and are unable to reschedule, you will be permitted to walk in during normal testing hours. However, you will be directed to a separate line for people without an appointment, and the wait time may be longer than normal. Please be prepared to present your appointment confirmation email at time of testing.

Travel Advisory

Mandates and requirements are not currently in place in Connecticut. However, travel is highly discouraged. Different modes of transportation, lodging, dining, and activities during travel carry different levels of risk of exposure to Covid-19. CDC’s “Know Your Travel Risk” guidance helps travelers understand their risk during travel. Activities listed under “Even Less Safe” and “Least Safe” should be avoided when possible.

If you do travel, the University requires that you continue to test weekly upon return. If you do not have a current test, you must submit an external test before resuming the weekly on-campus testing. Also, remember to self-monitor for signs and symptoms of Covid-19 and if you develop symptoms, self-isolate and seek testing.
