UW to Move to New COVID-19 Testing Program in July

June 21, 2021

The University of Wyoming will move to a new COVID-19 testing program starting the week of July 5 as part of the summer plan approved by the university’s Board of Trustees.

Each week, 3 percent of UW’s active employees, students enrolled in in-person classes and those living on campus will be randomly selected and receive emails to schedule their diagnostic tests. Those who are selected will have the ability to opt out of the tests if they’ve been fully vaccinated; been tested within the previous five days; or are on vacation or have other unforeseen issues that particular week.

Those who opt out because they’ve been fully vaccinated will be removed from random sampling in subsequent weeks as well.

Testing will take place Monday-Friday from 9-11 a.m. in the basement of the Wyoming Union. Masks are required at UW’s testing and other clinical sites. No testing will take place Monday, July 5.

Members of the UW community and the public also have the ability to be tested voluntarily for COVID-19 as part of the summer program.
