The Voluntary Testing Program, which was paused to accommodate increased demand for symptomatic and exposure testing, and mandatory testing of residence in on-campus housing, resumed on Monday, February 14. Unlike Autumn Quarter, voluntary testing for Winter Quarter is on-demand, with no need to commit to weekly testing. This change is to increase accessibility of testing for travel and other purposes. Individuals will need to self-schedule their test by visiting the my.WellnessPortal.
Slots are available for new Voluntary Testing Program participants during Winter Quarter. To participate, you must be a member of the UChicago community, and cannot have tested positive for COVID-19 in the 90 days prior. You must also complete the program consent forms. As reminder, this saliva-based PCR test requires that participants refrain from eating, drinking, using tobacco, chewing gum, or using oral hygiene products for 60 minutes prior to their testing appointment.
Voluntary testing takes place at the Walker Museum, Suite 309, located on the main quadrangle Monday through Friday from 8:00a.m. until 4:45p.m. and on Fridays at the Gleacher Center. For questions about the program, please contact C19Testing@uchicago.edu or visit the UChicago Forward website.
