Coronavirus: What You Need to Know
Official updates from the University of Delaware regarding the current status of the COVID-19 virus and its impact on the University community
FACULTY AND STAFF TESTING FOR WINTER SESSION
For faculty and staff who are coming to campus regularly, you are required to complete a COVID-19 test before you return or, if necessary, during your first week back. After that initial test, you do not need to get tested again until further notice, as long as you do not experience COVID symptoms and the Daily Health Screening Form indicates that you are cleared to be on campus.
This test can be done at one of the UD testing sites, which are available only for students, faculty or staff who need to be on campus regularly. The test can also be done elsewhere, such as a health care center or a testing site offered by the Delaware Division of Public Health or New Castle County. More information is available here. Faculty and staff who get a test at a non-UD site must upload the results to UD Human Resources.
University officials are working closely with the State Division of Public Health on plans for forthcoming distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine. Details will be announced as soon as plans are finalized.
