Temporary Parking Access Available for Faculty and Staff COVID-19 Testing

Dear Faculty and Staff:

Several weeks ago, we announced that the University’s ongoing virus surveillance testing program would transition from repeated testing of all students to large-scale “freedom from disease” sampling of the residential campus population. Faculty epidemiologists from the Falk College have designed this freedom from disease sampling protocol to include the opportunity for faculty and staff to routinely access on-campus COVID-19 testing.

That said, we have heard from some of you that while you would like to take advantage of on-campus testing, the stadium can be challenging to access given the limited parking close by.
