Dear Campus Community,

As we approach the upcoming holiday break, please note that there will be NO COVID-19 TESTING for students or employees the week of November Break, Nov. 22-23. Students and employees who are required to test each week are exempt from testing that week. Individuals who are required to test weekly must still be sure to participate in testing this coming Monday, Nov. 15, or Tuesday, Nov. 16, before leaving for break, and again on Monday, Nov. 29, or Tuesday, Nov. 30, after their return.

All students and employees, regardless of vaccination status, are encouraged to participate in testing on Nov. 15 or Nov. 16 before leaving for the holiday. Having a negative test before departing campus may provide peace of mind for you and the family and friends you are visiting. For the same reasons, all members of the campus community are encouraged to participate in testing on Nov. 29 or Nov. 30 as they return to campus. Testing on these days for those who are otherwise exempt is not required, but is strongly encouraged.

If you have questions regarding testing, results or requirements, students should contact Mary Bonderoff, Interim Vice President for Student Affairs and Chief Diversity Officer, at, and employees should contact Human Resources at

Thank you for your cooperation and participating in keeping both our campus and our communities safe. Have a wonderful holiday!
