UPDATE: COVID-19 Info for Faculty & Staff

October 16, 2021

Please read this important update about required weekly COVID-19 testing at Baylor University.

As President Livingstone announced in a recent Presidential Perspective, beginning Monday, October 18, Baylor will transition from required twice-weekly COVID-19 testing to required once-weekly testing for students, faculty and staff who are not exempt from the testing requirements. As a reminder, exemption from weekly testing is given to faculty and staff who are fully vaccinated, have had a documented, positive COVID-19 diagnosis within the past 180 days, or are working remotely. The University will continue to re-evaluate the testing requirement.

With the change to once-weekly testing, the Hankamer/Cashion testing location will close permanently after Friday, October 15. Testing will continue to be available for faculty, staff and students at the North Village Community Center from 7:45 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. (Monday-Thursday) and 7:45 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (Friday).

Testing is also available for faculty and staff Wednesdays at Clifton Robinson Tower from 9:00 a.m. to noon and at Washington Tower from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
