COVID-19 Testing

  • Neither symptomatic employees nor student may return to any campus building until testing has been completed or symptoms have abated.
  • Individuals who have a positive test will not be permitted to return to any campus location (with the exception of isolation units of residence life) until they receive medical clearance to do so.
  • Have questions about MyPrevea app used for scheduling testing appointments? See FAQs.

Faculty/Staff (all campuses)

In response on the recent update to SYS 600-02, Interim: Summer 2021 COVID-19 Testing Requirements, any UW-Green Bay employee that is fully vaccinated and does not have symptoms of COVID-19 will no longer be required to participate in bi-weekly surveillance testing effective, May 10, 2021.

Employees who are fully vaccinated can get an exemption from the testing requirement by completing the Immunization Record Form located in the MyUWPortal. As part of the form, employees will be required to upload proof of vaccination, by providing a copy of their vaccination record from the Wisconsin Immunization Registry. Instructions on how to complete the form can be viewed here.

An individual is considered fully vaccinated:

  • Two (2) weeks after receiving both doses of a two-dose vaccine (Pfizer or Moderna); or
  • Two (2) weeks after receiving a one-dose vaccine (Johnson & Johnson)

Employees who are not fully vaccinated or choose not to receive the vaccination will still be required to obtain a test through the UW-Green Bay Testing Center or have the testing administered at a medical service provider of their choice or an alternative testing location. Please note campus testing locations and hours have changed.

Any employee who tests positive for COVID-19 should follow current University protocols.  Employees who have previously tested positive will not be required to engage in continued testing every two weeks for 90 days after the administration of the positive test.
 
Testing Logistics:
Since testing is a requirement for working on campus, unless fully vaccinated, employees expected to work on-campus at least once a week should be allowed to get their biweekly test on work time during their regularly scheduled work hours. Non-symptomatic employees may be tested on the campuses at the following times/locations:

Students (all campuses)

Symptomatic

If you feel ill with symptoms consistent with COVID-19, and/or if the daily assessment tool alerts you to take action, you should contact the Wellness Center at 920-465-2380, your personal medical provider or sign on to MyPrevea.com to complete a self-triage assessment to better determine if testing is needed. Free symptomatic testing (PCR) for students will take place at the Prevea location nearest to you. All testing for those presenting symptoms needs to be pre-scheduled. Please refrain from visiting the Wellness Center or other Prevea locations without having scheduled an appointment and having received appropriate instructions on arrival time/location. 
 

Asymptomatic

Per UW-System policy 600-02, UW-Green Bay students who are fully vaccinated and do not have symptoms of COVID-19 will no longer be required to participate in bi-weekly surveillance testing, or complete the daily self-assessment effective May 21, 2021.

Students can receive the exemption by documenting their vaccination(s) at this form.  As part of the form, you will be required to upload proof of vaccination. Proof can be a legible image of your vaccination card or a copy of their vaccination record from the Wisconsin Immunization Registry. To access your Wisconsin immunization records, go to the site, enter your name, date of birth and social security number and select Search. On the next screen, select print, and save the document as a pdf, which can then be uploaded to the Testing Exception Form.

An individual is considered fully vaccinated:
  • Two (2) weeks after receiving both doses of a two-dose vaccine (Pfizer or Moderna); or
  • Two (2) weeks after receiving a one-dose vaccine (Johnson & Johnson)

Students coming to campus who are not fully vaccinated or choose not to receive the vaccination will still be required to test on a regular basis. Residential students will continue to test on a weekly basis. Commuting students, if coming to campus on a regular basis (once per week), will need to test every 2 weeks. This is the same testing schedule as spring semester.   

Testing is available through the UW-Green Bay Testing Center or students can have the testing administered at a medical service provider of their choice or an alternative testing location. Please note campus testing locations and hours have changed for the summer. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact CovidResonse@uwgb.edu.
