On-Campus Testing

Residence areas were tested every other day, using a 24-hour wastewater-sample collection method. Students not covered by residence area testing, including commuters, were selected for a 20% random sample PCR test each week. Following NCAA guidelines, at least 25% of student-athletes were PCR tested every two weeks.
