Once you receive your first negative test result, you may leave your room to resume additional activities, including picking up packages at the mail room, picking up storage at off-site locations, and shopping for groceries. Please stay close to campus and continue to wear a face mask, keep a healthy distance, and minimize contact with others. Students are required to have three initial negative tests before they can fully take part in campus activities, including going to in-person classes.
