According to an August 20 press release from Eastern Michigan University, EMU students who are planning on living on campus this fall have been required to be tested for COVID-19 before arriving on campus. The requirement is part of a comprehensive plan implemented by the University to reduce the spread of COVID-19 on the EMU campus.
Prior to students returning to campus, EMU is working in conjunction with Vault Health and its partners to provide students with a COVID-19 saliva test that can be done at home. There will be no fee for the test.
Students who test positive, or students who do not take the test will not be allowed to check into the University and must follow #EMUSAFE protocols, which may include staying at the student's home residence or in their current residence. Affected students would then be contacted by the Dean of Students regarding next steps.
