Post-holiday COVID testing

Dear TCNJ Campus Community,

To better gauge the rate of infection after the Thanksgiving holiday and to allow a timely and effective response to any significant spike, TCNJ is implementing a three-pronged approach to testing as follows:

Mandatory testing: As has been the case this semester, unvaccinated community members must be tested weekly. Please schedule your appointment if you have not done so already.

Random testing: Bergen New Bridge will conduct random on-campus testing of a portion of the vaccinated campus community this week and the week of December 6. If selected, you will be notified via an email from Please follow the instructions in the email to schedule your test immediately. You are reminded that if selected for random testing, you are expected to comply.

Voluntary testing: We encourage anyone, regardless of vaccination status or prior infection, who has symptoms of COVID-19, has come into close contact with someone with COVID-19, or has taken part in activities that place them at higher risk for COVID-19 (e.g. travel, attending large indoor gatherings, or being in crowded or poorly ventilated indoor settings) to get tested. Testing details, including hours, location, and instructions on how to schedule a test, may be found on our Fall Return website.

We ask for your cooperation in being tested if you are included in any of the above scenarios. Together, we can maintain a safe and healthy community.
