Register for Pre-Thanksgiving Break COVID-19 Testing

Nov. 12, 2020 

Dear Saint Louis University students, 

As we announced last week, the University will offer optional COVID-19 testing to our students prior to their leaving for Thanksgiving break. 

In response to the level of interest we received from you, and thanks to many medical, nursing, and public health students, staff and faculty volunteering their time, we will now offer 2,700 students the opportunity to get tested before heading home. Testing will take place Thursday, Nov. 19 through Monday, Nov. 23. 

A few reminders before you register:   

It bears repeating: A negative test is not a free pass. It is simply a snapshot in time. You must continue to be mindful of the public health protocols that have gotten us this far into the semester –– even when you sit down for dinner with your loved ones this Thanksgiving. 

If you need a reminder about what a positive or negative test result means prior to Thanksgiving –– or about the different community-based testing resources available to you –– review last week’s message

Stay safe and healthy.
