While we are all eager to return to spending time on campus with each other, resuming on-campus activity will require vigilant adherence to all safety protocols including weekly COVID-19 screening tests for all students and employees who will work on campus two or more days per week.

Lafayette has worked with Lehigh Valley Health Network to make the testing process as quick and convenient as possible with nearly 40 hours of appointments available every week. Each employee will have a set day and time each week to go to the Wilson Room in Pfenning for testing. Times slots are available Monday, Wednesday, and Friday 7 a.m.–3 p.m. and Tuesday and Thursday 10 a.m.–5 p.m.

How the process will work.

  • During the return-to-campus test, most employees were assigned a standing time for weekly testing, which will start the week of Feb. 8. Some employees and contractors will have weekly testing times scheduled directly by their supervisor in coordination with LVHN. Those employees will be notified by their supervisor about their appointments, and they may not receive an individual email from the Coordinated Health scheduler. LVHN will work with the Lafayette testing team and supervisors to post hardcopy information about testing schedules and emergency rescheduling procedures in the workplace and also send via email.If you have not had your return-to-campus test or had it without scheduling a weekly time, you will receive a call from the Coordinated Health scheduler between Feb. 1-4.
  • If you test positive for COVID-19, you do not need to do testing for 90 days after your positive test date. You will receive confirmation adjusted for the date that weekly testing will resume. If you have not informed the College of a positive test, please provide the date of your test to healthsvcs@lafayette.edu.Based on LVHN recommendations, faculty and staff who have received both doses of the vaccine and waited 14 days after their second dose are no longer required to enroll in weekly testing, though they have the option of continuing. This policy only applies to faculty and staff.
  • By Feb. 5, you should have received an email confirming your weekly testing date and time. If you need to request a schedule change, contact Katie Nederostek at Coordinated Health at 610-861-8080 x 36081 or Cathrine.Nederostek@lvhn.org and LVHN will do everything we can to try to accommodate the change.

Thank you for your cooperation in this important aspect of keeping our community safe.
