Winter 2021 Semester COVID-19 Mass Screening Requirement

As was done during the Fall 2020 semester, Northern will again be doing regular mass COVID-19 screenings throughout Winter 2021. However, a change this semester is that all students, faculty, and staff who are on campus are being assigned a required COVID-19 mass screening testing date. This type of ongoing testing helps Northern to monitor COVID-19 levels on campus and to identify asymptomatic individuals who are infected with the coronavirus.

During Winter 2021, Northern will perform a mass screening each week, rotating residence hall students with the off-campus population (off-campus students, faculty, and staff). 

If you were medically exempt from the Passport to Campus mass testing or you are on record as learning/ teaching/working remotely, you are also exempt from the winter mass screenings.
