COVID Testing Surveillance

 

Seattle U is partnering with Altius Institute for Biomedical Sciences to offer a PCR test for COVID (SARS CoV-2) and will begin surveillance testing students 9/21/20. 

Is this the test that feels like it's going up into your brain?

NO, this test is collected from the very front of the nostrils and students will be doing the test themselves but while being observed by a SHC staff.

What will the process look like?

  1. Weekly on Friday a random list of students are sent an email that they have been selected for surveillance testing 
  2. Students will be given directions on where to pick up the test kit
  3. Once they get their test kit they will go online to schedule their virtually observed test with the SHC staff for the following week (tests done that are not observed by a staff member can not be used!)
  4. After the test is done the student will bring the test to a location designated in the email and then the SHC will send to the lab
  5. Anyone who tests postive will be notified immediately but if you haven't heard from the SHC in 3 days then you can assume that your test was negative - "No news is good news!"
