Testing and Surveillance

When a student or employee came to campus for the first time during this academic year, a negative COVID test was required. On October 15, we began conducting "surveillance" testing, which targeted 20 percent of our on-campus community each week. After the Thanksgiving break, employees who are working on-campus are tested weekly. When students return to campus in January, all community members will be tested weekly.

Our surveillance testing will be conducted by our nursing staff using an RT-PCR assay.
 
Testing is one of many mitigation strategies. It is all of our strategies together that help us reduce the risk of a COVID outbreak on our campus.

Terminology

List of 4 items.

  • Indeterminate

    Indeterminate test results are repeated to reach a conclusive outcome and then reported as either positive or negative.
  • Negative

    Negative tests include only negative results from tests administered through Emma Willard School.
  • Positive

    Positive tests include any positive test administered through the Emma Willard School or reported to the school. 
  • Total Tests

    Total tests vary based on our testing protocols: pre-travel tests taken before returning to campus, surveillance testing for students and employees (at least 20% weekly) and larger scale population (employees at the start of the school year).
