COVID Testing

Last updated: March 10, 2022

Mandatory Regular Testing

Weekly testing for non-symptomatic unvaccinated and/or non-boosted members will no longer be required, except for unvaccinated individuals participating in NCAA athletics. Regarding athletics, athletes and coaches who are not fully vaccinated must continue to undergo COVID testing while in season as required by the most-recent NCAA guidance. Testing will continue to be administered by Cal Lutheran athletic training staff.

For all other individuals, adherence to a testing schedule and submission of results will no longer be monitored by either Academic Services (students) or supervisors (employees). 

A regular testing schedule for asymptomatic individuals who live with or who frequently interact with vulnerable populations is strongly recommended.

Testing for Symptomatic Individuals

Current policy remains intact. Regardless of vaccination status, immediate testing for individuals exhibiting COVID-related symptoms is required, and individuals with symptoms must not come to campus.

As noted on the KNOW page, anyone with symptoms can return to campus after a negative test, symptoms are improving, and no fever in the prior 24 hours.

Free testing is still readily accessible. Testing can be done outside Health Services or at State testing sites, or with government-supplied at-home tests., and students may continue to make an appointment for a rapid test at Health Services.
