We are offering self-administered tests through the Husky Coronavirus Testingvoluntary research study, powered by the Seattle Flu Study – the group that was the first to report community spread of COVID-19 in the United States. Enrollment is encouraged for all students, faculty and staff who will be on campus regularly. Kits are available in the Tacoma Paper & Stationery Building (TPS) (see sidebar for hours).
In order to protect the health and safety of our community, the University of Washington is requiring all students and personnel to be vaccinated against COVID-19, with certain exemptions allowed. You need toverify that you’ve been vaccinated or declare an exemption.
When should you report a case?
UW Environmental Health & Safety, in coordination with local and state public health agencies, responds to suspected and confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the UW community and takes action to prevent further transmission.
The public health response activities include a case interview, risk assessment, providing guidance for self-isolation, notifications to those impacted and contact tracing.
The Husky Coronavirus Testing program, a voluntary research study has self-test kits available on the Ground floor of the Tacoma Paper & Stationery Building (TPS). Finished tests can be placed in the dropbox there as well.
