eNews: Weekly COVID-19 Testing Update: New Locations and Hours

May 7, 2021

As we head into summer, Baylor University will be adjusting its regular weekly COVID-19 testing locations and hours. If you are coming to campus throughout the summer, please continue to test weekly – just as you have during the spring – unless you are exempt from testing. Exemptions include being fully vaccinated with a COVID-19 vaccine authorized for emergency use by the FDA or within 90 days of a positive COVID test.

Please note that today (Friday, May 7) is the last day of testing at the Memorial tent. Testing will end at the East Village and Fountain Mall tents on Tuesday, May 11.

Symptomatic/exposed: If you are a student with COVID symptoms or exposure to the virus, please log in to the Health Portal to make an appointment for testing at the Baylor Health Center in the McLane Student Life Center. Employees should contact their healthcare provider.

Confirming your vaccination

If you have been fully vaccinated, please confirm your vaccination by filling out the brief form at www.baylor.edu/vaccine and uploading a photo of your completed vaccination card. This HIPAA-protected information will be submitted to Health Services for exemption from weekly testing and quarantine and also helps us know how well protected Baylor is as a community while we continue planning for a normal fall.
