COVID-19 Testing for Spring 2022
Students living on campus need to complete an at-home COVID-19 test before moving back into their residence halls.
While we know that most of you are fully vaccinated, we also know that break-through cases are happening, and this test will help to prevent anyone from bringing COVID-19 to campus.
Kent State has partnered with Vault Health to provide you with an at-home, saliva-based COVID-19 test that you must complete and return before you move into your residence hall. The test is prepaid, at no cost to you. Some of you may have taken this test in a previous semester and know that it is a simple procedure.
Whether vaccinated or not, if you have tested positive for COVID-19 within the last 90 days and you are not currently having any symptoms of the virus, you do not have to perform this test. However, you must email a copy of your positive test result to email@example.com. Anyone without formal test results, for example, those who took an unproctored test, will have to take the Vault test.
You were emailed a personalized link to this test in an email on Jan. 5 with the subject line "(Your Name) - Test Before Move-In."
All residence hall students must take this test regardless of vaccination status.
Process for At-Home, Pre-Arrival Testing
Tests kits will not be sent outside of the United States, but you can request to have your test shipped to a U.S. address if you will be in the U.S. before you move to campus. If you are unable to complete the at-home test, you must test at one of the Visit Healthcare locations on campus within three to five days after your return to the U.S.
