Summer testing plans

As we end the spring semester, we will be closing the Carolina Testing Together Program. Starting May 9, enrolled students should contact Campus Health for testing or if they are symptomatic.

Dear Carolina Community,

As we come to the end of the spring semester, we have decided to close the Carolina Together Testing Program. The number of students seeking COVID-19 tests at the Carolina Union has dropped as self-test kits are widely available, and we will have fewer students on campus this summer than we do now.

Starting May 9, enrolled students should contact Campus Health if they wish to be tested or are symptomatic. Campus Health will be available open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for in-person visits.

Faculty and staff who wish to be tested or are symptomatic over the summer should contact their physician’s office. Please visit the Environment, Health and Safety website for specific COVID-19 guidance for employees.

Vaccines, boosters and anti-viral treatments are available at Campus Health, local physician offices and in selected pharmacies. In addition, we have increased the number of low-cost at-home COVID-19 tests for purchase at the Campus Health Pharmacy, the Student Stores Pharmacy and in vending machines in the Carolina Union and Rams Head Recreation Center.

As a reminder, the University’s COVID-19 Community Standards continue to be:

  • Stay up to date with your COVID-19 vaccines
  • Masks are optional
  • Practice healthy habits
  • Be respectful of others

The University will remove many of the temporary tent pavilions around campus following Commencement. We will continue to monitor local and national trends and adjust our operations, if necessary, in consultation with our public health and infectious disease experts.

Thank you for your support this year of the Carolina Together Testing Program. We hope everyone enjoys a safe and relaxing summer.
