Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the UVM community came together to teach and learn in person and to create an on-campus experience guided by our commitment to personal and community health. We’re proud to report that we maintained one of the lowest rates of positive COVID cases among all U.S. college campuses.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, we have consistently followed the guidance of medical and public health officials—and continue to do so. At this point in the pandemic, when testing as a prevention strategy has evolved and the demand for PCR testing has diminished, we have ceased the operations of our COVID-19 Information and Service Center. Students who seek a PCR test can schedule an appointment with the Center for Health and Wellbeing. All details are available in this July 18 update to campus.
Free rapid test kits and high-quality masks are available at the UVM Bookstore. Students and employees can pick up one test and a pack of two KN-95 masks per week with their CATcard, while supplies last.
We continue to monitor the evolving public health situation and will provide the UVM community with updated COVID-19 operations as necessary.
