UVM COVID-19 TESTING PROTOCOL (ALL STUDENTS)
All UVM students (including all medical students) rotating and/or living in Chittenden County who physically visit/access UVM-UVMMC campus(es), must be testing weekly during their time in Chittenden County and/or attending in-person
curriculum, per the UVM COVID-19 Student Testing Protocol. All surveillance testing (i.e. not acutely
ill) must occur at the UVM testing center.
Compliance will be monitored.
Testing Protocol Compliance
Testing compliance will be monitored. Students who fail to remain in compliance will be notified and referred to the Associate Dean for students. Noncompliance is considered an egregious offense when referencing the sanctioning guidelines. A first offense includes a $250 fine, and referral to the Committee on Fitness may
be required. For a second missed test, student will be referred to the Committee on Fitness, which could result in an Administrative Leave of Absence or dismissal.
If you receive an email and believe it is in error, please do not hesitate to reach out to UVM Strong (and CC studentCOMservices). We are here
to work with you and for you and support the rigorous protocol that is in place to ensure our campus and community remain safe.
- "Testing Weekly" Defined: Students should test at the Davis Center clinic 7 days from their previous test to remain in compliance. There is a 48-hour grace period, meaning you can test 7-9 days from your most-recent test
without being flagged for noncompliance. Students may also test earlier (i.e. 4-6 days from their most-recent test) to ensure compliance if/when adjusting for when you are able to visit the testing center.
- UVM Testing Center Hours: The Davis Center clinic is
open for testing 9am - 7pm, M-Th, and 9am-5pm on Fridays.
- Securing a Test: Walk-ins are no longer accepted at the clinic. Students must schedule tests via the CoVerified app/browser-based platform.
- UVM ID Required: You must bring your UVM Student ID (CATCard) with you to your scheduled test.
- Clinical Students Excused for Testing: The Clinical Level course directors support this protocol. They are aware of the weekly requirement and support students to be excused from their curriculum for 30 minute weekly testing
windows. Please contact your level coordinator with any questions (Jacqueline Drouin, Clerkship Level; Emma Faustner, Advanced Integration Level).
- Temporary Exemption Request Process: If you are going to be away for a week and will therefore miss their 7-9 day testing window (i.e. State-mandated quarantine, family emergency, one-week rotation outside of Chittenden County,
etc.), you can submit a temporary exemption request form via go.uvm.edu/testtemp to ensure you are not flagged for noncompliance. Students
should not step onto UVM/UVM Medical Center Campus(es) during an exemption window.
- Fully-Remote/Off-Campus Students: If you are fully remote and do not need physical access to any part of campus for the fall 2020 semester, you may submit a request for COVID testing "full exemption". The exemption testing option is only available if you are not planning to step onto campus (UVM/UVMMC) at any point, during the fall 2020 semester.
- Reminder Re: Vermont Travel Guidelines & an UPDATE Re: day-seven quarantine test: All students must still continue to adhere to state and local health and safety guidelines, including travel and quarantine requirements.
If you enter a travel-mandated quarantine and you are not experiencing any symptoms, you may now secure your day-seven test via the Davis Center clinic (counts as your weekly test, too!) and then return to quarantine;
you must secure a negative test result or reach day-14 of your quarantine prior to entering the community/returning to campus.
