New College faculty and staff may take COVID-19 virus tests from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Fri. Aug. 7 outside Sainer Pavilion.
Lab Services will be offering the oropharyngeal (throat) swab test, and the drive-through testing process is estimated to take less than 30 minutes. Test results are also likely to arrive in less than three to four days.
Lab Services has created a link (labservices.us/new-college) to allow employees to schedule an appointment, and upload copies of driver’s licenses and insurance cards. Any personal information will be HIPAA-protected; this is a requirement of all licensed testing services. To log in, click on the link, and a confirmation email will be sent.
Employees who do not have access to technology (such as a smartphone or computer) or transportation may contact Human Resources for assistance. Lastly, COVID-19 testing is required for all employees (including those working 100 percent off-campus) to enable New College to establish a baseline.
Please note: Employees who have already submitted test results do not have to test again. If you believe you may have been exposed to COVID-19 and would like to retest, you can take the test again (however, you will not receive four hours of administrative leave). Those who have not submitted test results before will receive four hours of administrative leave.
