Main campus students will be required to take COVID-19 test before returning this month

Main campus students will be required to take a COVID-19 test upon returning to campus beginning Jan. 10, Campbell University officials announced today. 

In an email sent to the student body, Vice President for Student Life Dr. Dennis Bazemore said students must test before they can move into residence halls, and commuting students before they return to campus. Student ID cards will be activated for the spring semester upon taking the test, Bazemore said. 

Testing will run on campus on the second floor of the Oscar N. Harris Student Union from 1 to 5 p.m., Jan. 10-14. Appointments can be made online by filling out this form

Students who have tested positive while away from campus since the Thanksgiving break and are still in isolation or quarantine are asked to remain home (self-report forms can be found here). Those who have tested positive, have been in isolation for at least 10 days and no longer have symptoms will not need to be retested if they can show documentation. 

“The health and safety of our campus community is a top priority as we begin the spring semester,” Bazemore said, “and requiring all students to participate in this testing will ensure that all of us are doing our part to keep our campus safe.”
