About Testing at TU

TU has implemented a number of new measures under the Tigers Care initiative that adhere to local, state and federal guidelines. This includes simple, self-initiated requirements like wearing a mask while on campus or in any campus building, keeping physical distance, frequently washing your hands and maintaining sanitized work spaces.

Sentinel testing, a random sample testing of the university community, now occurs regularly on campus. Only a sampling of those residing, regularly working and learning on campus are tested. These randomized tests are a proven and effective way to monitor the prevalence and spread of COVID-19 within our community and will further help to inform our campus response to the virus.

There is no testing requirement for students, faculty and staff beginning to return to campus. They should complete a daily QuickScan upon returning.

TU has made a commitment to share basic data with campus on a regular basis. The dashboard above will be updated weekly on Thursdays, with a link shared with students, faculty and staff through weekly resource emails.
