With the start of the 2020-21 academic year and the arrival of thousands of new and returning students, COVID-19 testing is a crucial part of Michigan Tech’s plan for fall.
Sarah Schulte, general counsel and secretary to the Board of Trustees, said the University’s student COVID-19 testing program has two main components — a strong baseline testing effort and ongoing surveillance testing.
Schulte said the baseline testing effort will primarily occur from Aug. 19, through Aug. 29. During that time, about half of the student population, approximately 40% of the anticipated total on-campus population, is expected to be tested.
