Once again, all students will take a pre-arrival test before returning to Burlington.

  • Students quarantining at home can use the pre-arrival test as a part of their quarantine plan. 
  • Off-campus students who stayed in Vermont over break should complete their pre-arrival test prior to their Day 0 testing day. In other words, enter your Day 0 test day (between January 25-31) to determine when to claim your pre-arrival COVID-19 test from Color.
