In advance of fall break, MSU is offering free, voluntary saliva-based departure screening and testing Nov. 15-22 for on- and off-campus students, as well as faculty and staff. MSU strongly encourages students, faculty and staff who are traveling to sign up on the program registration link.
Please note this is not a diagnostic test, so you will receive a recommendation to seek clinical confirmation testing if COVID-19 is detected in your sample.
Due to limited lab capacity, testing dates may fill up, so please sign up as soon as possible.
Remember, any form of testing reflects your COVID-19 status at the time your sample was collected. That’s why it’s vital to stay vigilant and continue to practice safe behaviors, such as:
- Continue preventive health measures, including wearing a face mask, maintaining physical distancing, washing your hands frequently and avoiding large gatherings.
- Practice an enhanced physical distancing period for 14 days before you leave East Lansing.
- Quarantine for 14 days upon arrival at your destination.
