“Beginning Monday, Feb. 1, and for the remainder of the semester, off-campus students will be expected to report for testing on the third floor of Cartwright once every two weeks.

The initial BinaxNOW antigen test will provide results within 15 minutes. Some students may be advised to take a confirmatory PCR test.
