Surveillance Testing Continues
NJCU is utilizing a targeted testing approach based on the risk of transmission of COVID-19 within the university community to identify those who may have COVID but are a-symptomatic. This method is known as surveillance testing.
Surveillance testing continues this week. Each week, we encourage you to sign up for an on-campus appointment. There are 10 time slots available from which to choose. Register anytime for tests on Tuesdays or Thursdays now through March 11. Appointments are available next week on Tuesday, January 19 and Thursday, January 21 between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m..
