As the end of the semester approaches, Clark continues to show low levels of COVID-19 positivity with no concerning transmission trends detected on campus. We continue to monitor data and trends at the local, regional, and national levels, including the results of wastewater tracking in Boston and the Upper Blackstone.
Please take note of the upcoming changes to Clark’s testing operations:
- The Testing Center will close effective May 11.
- After May 10, Clark will make rapid antigen tests available at the Information Desk in the Higgins University Center for students who are remaining on campus through Commencement Day, May 22. Please test yourself if you are experiencing COVID-like symptoms.
- If a student’s self-test returns a positive result, the student is instructed to call University Police at (508) 793-7575. UP will then put them in touch with the Dean of Students Office.
- Faculty and staff who wish to test after May 11 should acquire their own rapid tests or utilize other off-site testing options. Tests are available at local pharmacies and can be ordered free of charge from the federal government.
