- Monitoring Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) - February 22, 2021
A rapid PCR testing machine is now available through Health Services. This test—which processes results in 15–20 minutes—is now being offered to students, faculty, and staff who are symptomatic. The rapid PCR will allow those being tested to avoid quarantine while they await results and will facilitate our ability to track and trace positive cases.
