Fully Vaccinated?

If fully vaccinated for COVID-19, report your vaccine using Stetson’s Vaccine Report Form. Individuals who report their vaccine to Stetson, at least one week prior to their Gateway appointment, will not have to participate in Gateway Campus Arrival process. Showing proof of COVID vaccination during check in will NOT exempt you from testing.

Testing Method

Simple Life CUE Health rapid PCR nasal swab test will be required on-site for all facility, staff, undergraduate and graduate students without a Stetson record of a COVID-19 vaccination or COVID-19 testing exemption. The Cue COVID-19 test is a fast, lab-quality molecular test. Specifically, it has been authorized by the Federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) under an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for the detection of nucleic acid from SARS-CoV-2. This CUE Health rapid PCR test differs in several ways, including:

  • The CUE COVID-19 test is fast, lab-quality molecular test.
  • The test is a self-administered, under the supervision of a Stetson employee, nasal swab.
  • The CUE Sample Wand will be inserted into one nostril about 1 inch or up to the marker on the wand. The Wand must be rotated in a circular motion against the nostril wall 5 times. Process needs to be repeated in second nostril.
  • Once the test if completed, the individual must sit and wait while the test is being processed, ~20 minutes for results.
