Dear Students,

Thank you for your continued compliance in following Susquehanna’s Covid safety protocols. Your 96% vaccination rate and adherence to masking, testing and other measures have made such a positive impact on the fall semester experience for everyone. Keep up the good work!

Testing Changes for Students

Because of this success, starting in November, SU is running a trial of adjusted surveillance testing for a few weeks. For some student populations, the amount of testing will stay the same, but for others, they may see a decrease in the frequency of their testing requests. Locations and times for testing options may also differ. If you see the requirements for you to test are lessened, please know that is deliberate as we try this new protocol. For all students, please be sure to check your email frequently and respond as necessary to all requests for testing.

If you are not required to be tested and would like a test before traveling for Thanksgiving Week, you should make arrangements in advance with a local medical facility or buy a home testing kit at a local pharmacy or online.

Flu Shot Reminder for Students

The Student Health Center is offering students free flu shots by appointment on Tuesday, Nov. 2, and Tuesday, Nov. 9 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. in Degenstein SDR 1-3. Make an appointment here.
