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 testcomply@tcnj.edu. 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.

Sincerely,

Janice Vermeychuk, APN
Director of Student Health Services
