Surveillance Testing

Pierce County Emergency Management Mobile Testing Units will be arriving on campus at the start of the semester for testing of all incoming students, and additionally twice monthly through the year to do surveillance testing. Small groups of students, staff and faculty will be asked to participate in testing while they are feeling healthy. This is a public health strategy that helps communities and the local public health authorities learn whether there is a presence of COVID-19 in persons who have no symptoms of the virus and serves as a way to contain transmission before too many people are exposed.
