Yes. Each residential student must take a rapid test upon arrival to campus and approximately 7 days later on either February 5, 6 or 7.The tests will be provided free of charge by McDaniel College and will be performed by Quest Diagnostics professionals.
In addition to providing COVID-19 testing twice to every residential student, the College is also continuing to test students weekly throughout the semester starting Feb. 15 as part of our surveillance testing program, as outlined in our Student Prevention, Testing and Treatment Protocols for COVID-19. The sample group will contain a combination of actively enrolled residential students, actively enrolled commuter students, faculty reporting to campus and staff reporting to campus. This is in addition to the tests being administered to those who develop COVID-19 symptoms.
