Designated faculty and staff, residential students and select student employees will participate in required surveillance testing. Testing locations will be expanded as needed. Surveillance testing on campus is free for all faculty, staff and students. The process itself can be completed in five minutes or less, which we hope helps participants incorporate testing into their weekly routine.
Following are the steps for the surveillance testing process:
Step 1: Selected surveillance program participants will receive an email with details to conduct a test on specific days.
Step 2: On the day of the test, participants should visit one of the campus collection locations (information below).
Step 3: Participants should arrive at the test site with their NC State ID and phone. Participant ID information is required for check-in.
Daily Symptom Monitoring
All community members who access campus must conduct daily symptom checks regardless of whether they participate in testing, as part of NC State’s community standards. If you are feeling unwell, stay home.
