The University's testing protocol is part of a comprehensive strategy to limit the spread of COVID-19 on campus. It links directly with other parts of that strategy including the University Testing Center at the Joyce Center North Dome and the Daily Health Check.
Diagnostic testing involves testing those who are showing symptoms of COVID-19 or who have been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19. Diagnostic Testing is done at Gate 3 of the Joyce Center by appointment only.
Surveillance testing involves testing a random selection of people from across campus to identify asymptomatic and presymptomatic individuals and help avert potential outbreaks before they occur. Surveillance Testing is done at Gate 2 of the Joyce Center. When selected, you will receive a text or email with details.
The University is working collaboratively with the St. Joseph County Health Department on contact tracing to help keep the University community safe.
Faculty and staff are strongly encouraged to inform the Notre Dame Wellness Center if they test positive for COVID-19 regardless of where they have the test performed. This information will help the University’s contact tracers with the contact tracing process for any campus activity.
We want to make it as easy as possible for students, faculty, and staff getting tested elsewhere to be able to share their test results with us:
- Faculty & Staff: Take a photo of your test result and email it to the Notre Dame Wellness Center at email@example.com.
- Students (both undergraduate and graduate): Upload a photo of your test results through your student portal in UHS.
