Posted: March 9, 2020 at 12:52 p.m.

Thank you for your recent responses to our survey of on-campus work activities.  As part of our continuing Safe Return to Campus strategy for controlling the spread of COVID-19 on campus, we will begin surveillance testing for faculty and staff next week.

The testing pool will be randomly selected each week from employees who meet the following criteria:

  1. The employee works two or more days on campus.
  2. The employee has not tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 90 days.
  3. The employee has not received a COVID-19 vaccination and is not currently participating in a COVID-19 vaccination program.

Selected employees will be notified on Fridays and testing will be performed on the following Wednesday between 8:00 a.m. and 12:00 noon in Ballroom A of the Harre Union.  Testing will be performed by healthcare providers from Marathon Health (formerly OurHealth) and will be Rapid Tests.

There is no cost to the employee for this testing.

If your circumstances are different from the criteria listed above or if they change after you have been identified for testing, please notify Human Resources (human.resources@valpo.edu) prior to the test date and provide supporting documentation if applicable.

Thank you for your continuing efforts, including participation in programs such as this, to help stem the spread of COVID-19.  Your contributions of wearing face coverings, practicing physical distancing, monitoring your symptoms, and testing are essential to a safe and successful return to campus.
