Touchless temperature check in the Northern Center

Mass Screening Requirement

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.

Ongoing Testing

At this time, COVID-19 testing at the NMU Health Center requires a lab order and is only being done for symptomatic patients who are actively enrolled students, faculty or staff. The Marquette community supports several testing sites, including some that do not require a doctor's order and for asymptomatic individuals.

If you receive a positive test from an outside testing agency, contact the NMU Health Center at 906-227-2355 or the NMU Human Resources Department at 906-227-2330 as soon as possible. 

All persons who test positive will be asked to immediately isolate for a specified period of time. Guidance will be provided by the NMU Health Center or your own health care provider. If you are an on-campus resident, there will be a location specified for your isolation. Employees and commuter students will be asked to isolate at their personal residences.
