SYMPTOMATIC COVID-19 TESTING

Anyone currently experiencing COVID-19 symptoms must isolate and not visit campus for any reason. If you are experiencing symptoms, please contact your health care provider for guidance and seek testing either through your health care provider or one of the many free testing sites available through the County Health Department.  Free testing sites in Santa Clara County can be found HERE.

ON-CAMPUS SURVEILLANCE TESTING
VOLUNTARY  & MANDATORY
(for asymptomatic individuals only)

Free, on-campus, COVID-19 surveillance testing (PCR test) is now available for any faculty, staff, or students working onsite that are not experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.  Staff and students may utilize this service voluntarily for any reason, and appointments are not required.

If you will be utilizing this service in the future, please take a moment to register in advance with the service provider, Virus Geeks, as it will make the testing process go much more quickly (you will be provided with a QR code you can save on your phone and show at the time of service).  Please note that you are not required to make a testing appointment at the time of registration.  To register, please go HERE.

Staff or students that have been approved for a religious or medical exemption from the District's vaccination requirement are required to complete a COVID-19 test twice per week using the on-campus testing service.  Test results from other providers or locations will not be accepted to meet the twice per week requirement.  Please note that the two tests must be taken during the same calendar week and one test must be taken on either a Monday or Tuesday, and the second test must be taken on either a Wednesday or Thursday. 


Testing services are available at both campus during the following hours: 


NOTE: Testing services will not be provided on the Labor Day holiday, Monday 9/5
