TESTING

Students will be tested for COVID-19 under the following circumstances:

  • Random tests will be conducted on residential students, student-athletes, and participants in certain co-curricular activities until we are able to confirm that 80% of our campus community has been vaccinated.
  • Students who have been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 will be tested.
  • Students who are experiencing a number of COVID-19 symptoms or have a high fever will be tested.

Two kinds of tests are available to be administered to students. The first is a rapid response spit test, with same-day results. This test is only used during random screening tests. If this test yields a positive result for COVID-19, the student is moved to an isolation house on campus to await a follow-up nasal swab test.

The second test is a sputum test available at the Campus Nurses’ office. Iowa Wesleyan University as part of Test Iowa and will have these tests available to anyone who has been exposed or feeling symptoms of possible COVID.

Any student may inquire about getting tested by emailing our Campus Nurse , [email protected]: [email protected] for more information.
