After April 16, 2021, students will no longer be required to participate in mandatory, bi-weekly testing on campus for the spring 2021 semester. (Note: if you are a student athlete, you must continue to test when required to by Athletics)
Students will take a saliva based polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test. This test detects RNA (or genetic material) that is specific to the virus. Samples are collected by spitting into a collection vial.
The PCR spit test sample can become diluted and give inconclusive results if you eat or drink within one hour prior to your test. If your test in inconclusive you will be required to re-test.
Yes. Please see the “Testing Sign Up” section above for instructions on how to sign up.
No. This testing is only for Carroll University students.
Carroll University is required to report all results to the local health department. The Waukesha County Health Department and Wisconsin State Laboratory of Hygiene will be informed of your positive test results. A Carroll University contact tracer will also follow up with you.
Students who meet the following criteria are not required to participate in on-campus asymptomatic testing:
Example: if you receive your second dose of the Pfizer vaccine on March 8, this means you are exempt from testing between March 22 (14 days post-vaccination) and June 9 (90 days post-vaccination).
If you are fully vaccinated, please submit your vaccination date(s) and records to the Student Spring Semester 2021 COVID Test/Vaccine Report form
If you tested positive for COVID-19 within the last 90 days, you will not need to participate in testing until you complete the 90 day period after your positive test result. If you have tested positive in the last 90 days, please report your test results to the Student Spring Semester 2021 COVID Test/Vaccine Self Report form. If you tested positive over 90 days ago, you will need to participate in testing when asked to do so.
If you have any questions regarding the testing requirement, please email us.
Thank you for helping us keep our Carroll community safe!
