Quest Diagnostics, the company which will support West Conn with PCR COVID-19 testing, was unable to go to campus yesterday afternoon as planned. All members of the West Conn community who are required to test were asked to visit the Midtown Student Center’s Colonial Corner today or tomorrow between 1pm and 3pm for a rapid antigen test.
Students and staff who have been granted vaccine exemptions are required to test each week, and submit those results to the university.
During the semester, residential students in apartment-style halls who test positive or are symptomatic will isolate in their rooms with their roommates. Students living in Litchfield or Newbury Halls will isolate in Fairfield Hall. Any student able to return home to recover is encouraged to follow that course. Indoor social distancing and masks will be required for the foreseeable future and no spectators will be allowed at WCSU athletic events.
