Updates on COVID-19 Testing Options and Gateway Testing

A recap of Wednesday’s Weekly Update:

• Through our partnership with AdventHealth and CentraCare, Stetson will be offering free rapid antigen COVID-19 testing on Wednesday, Nov. 4. Testing will take place from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. in the Rinker Field House in the Hollis Center and is available to students and employees. This testing is not mandatory, but highly encouraged for the safety and well-being of the entire Stetson Community. Sign up here  for your appointment!

• Stetson students can get free rapid antigen testing off campus at any CentraCare location. You must bring printouts of the two forms, found at the link below, when you visit the CentraCare location. You can make an appointment online – select the option for COVID-19 Testing. Results will be shared with Stetson Health Service and the Dean of Students Office to help provide support for COVID positive students.

• Stetson’s Safer Campus Task Force (SCTF) is happy to announce Spring 2021 Gateway Testing in partnership with DeLand Wellness Center. Community members will be required to participate if they are an employee coming to campus at any point during the semester, undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in face-to-face or hybrid classes, on-campus residents and undergraduate commuters living within 45 miles of campus.

Gateway Testing will take place Jan. 9-13, 2021, 8:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. in the Rinker Field House, Hollis Center. If you are returning to an on-campus residence, please note that the residence halls do not open until Jan. 10, 2021, so please schedule your test accordingly. Rapid antigen testing will be provided through your choice of a nasal or throat swab. Appointment registration and the exemption/accommodation process will be available in early November.
