To the Campus Community:
It is vitally important for all members of our UMass community to comply with all of the public health measures we have put into place to keep our community safe from COVID-19. One of these measures is participating in asymptomatic testing at the Public Health Promotion Center at the Mullins Center.
Given the importance of the green checkmark to ensure campus safety via the UMass Campus Health Hub , we want to reiterate how the green checkmark system works.
- The green checkmark indicates you are in compliance with the UMass Asymptomatic Testing Program and have completed your daily symptom self-check. When you log into the Campus Health Hub, it displays a green checkmark as well as a date stamp and time, indicating you’re in compliance.
- If you are out of compliance, you will see a yellow checkmark indicating you are either out of compliance with testing or have not submitted your daily symptom self-check.
- If you are a campus member who does not regularly come to campus, you will have a green checkmark when your last test was in the last four days; otherwise, you will see a grey Do Not Enter sign.
- For students getting tested twice weekly, you cannot get tested on two consecutive days, such as on Monday and Tuesday. We recommend a Monday/Thursday or Tuesday/Friday testing schedule.
Please refer to the UMass COVID-19 Testing Programs page for more information about the requirements for testing.
Please remember, testing is NOT a substitute for prevention measures. Even with increased participation in the campus asymptomatic testing program, you must still continue to follow guidance concerning physical distancing, wearing face coverings, washing hands frequently, conducting a daily symptom checklist, and staying home if you experience COVID-19 like symptoms.
