Will there be a testing alternative for employees who do not want to be tested on/by the campus?
Yes. Employees who do not want to participate in campus-based pool testing may elect to be tested off campus by their health care provider, pharmacy or other COVID-19 testing facility.
Those who choose this approach will be required to submit testing results to the Benefits office, either as a scanned attachment or a hard copy (which can be left in the secure lock box outside of the Office of Human Resources, Diversity & Inclusion, HAB 603).
Off-campus testing must be conducted within two weeks prior to their indicated testing dates in order to meet the requirement.
As an example, for employees represented by UUP, that means the first test must be conducted between Sept. 17 and Oct. 9 to satisfy the October testing requirement, as the dates of on-campus testing for UUP employees are Oct. 1-2 and Oct. 8-9.
