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, 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:

Commuter students (Green Bay Campus)

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

All students who physically come to campus, for any purpose, at least on a weekly basis, will need to complete an antigen COVID test ONCE EVERY OTHER WEEK. Here is how it will look:
 
  • On the Green Bay campus, testing will be available at the East Gym of the Kress Center (2358 Leon Bond Dr, Green Bay, WI), Monday through Friday. (There is also a public vaccination site that will be hosted at the Kress Center. Please pay attention to your entry points for testing. Testing entry is through eterior doors of the East Gym.) Appointments on the Green Bay Campus need to be scheduled in advance using the MyPrevea app or at MyPrevea.com.
  • If tested positive, Green Bay students will be referred to The Wellness Center for a PCR Test.
 

Students Living in Residence Life (Green Bay Campus)

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 or sign on to MyPrevea.com to complete a self-triage assessment to better determine if testing is needed. Symptomatic testing (PCR) will take place in office spaces just outside the Wellness Center, located in Student Services #1400. All testing for those presenting symptoms needs to be pre-scheduled. Please refrain from visiting the Wellness Center without having scheduled an appointment and having received appropriate instructions on arrival time/location.
 
*Any student who seeks testing outside of the UW-Green Bay Wellness Center should use their Green Bay campus address. This will allow the University to work closely with the appropriate Health Department to maintain a safe campus community.

Asymptomatic

Students living in campus housing will be required to be antigen tested every two weeks during the fall semester. These tests are designed to get a faster result, and to help determine if a PCR test is needed to confirm positivity. Both types of tests (PCR and antigen) involve a simple swab being inserted into the nose.
 
Email notifications will be sent identifying 3-4 residence halls/apartment buildings per day (M-Th) for antigen testing. Once notified of their date of testing, residents will be asked to visit MyPrevea.com or the MyPrevea app in order to establish an actual appointment time. Halls/buildings will always be tested on the same day of the week. Once an appointment is established, reminders will be issued the day prior to the appointment to assist with attendance. Emails will be sent every 2 weeks to remind students to schedule their next appointment. Students who either do not schedule an appointment or fail to attend an appointment will be contacted by University staff.
 
On the date of the antigen test, students should report to the East Gym of Kress Events Center, 2358 Leon Bond Dr., Green Bay, WI, (through exterior doors) 5 minutes prior to their appointment time. Upon entering the space, staff will direct students to a registration/waiting area where a Student ID will be needed for check-in. Students will meet briefly with a testing staff member who will quickly perform a nasal swab, and direct the student to exit the testing space via a separate egress point. Testing results will be shared via the student’s MyPrevea account within 48 hours of the sample collection process.
 
For students who test positive to an antigen test, they will be referred to the Wellness Center for a PCR test, and will be asked to quarantine until results are known. PCR test results are normally processed within 72 hours. Students are free to return home to await test results OR can opt to quarantine in campus housing. For those choosing the latter, Residence Life staff will work to temporarily relocate residents, as needed, into housing that has been held for this purpose. Students moved to quarantine housing will have all basic needs met, including but not limited to meals and academic accommodations.
 
When a residential student tests positive to a PCR test, they will need to decide if they would like to return home for the 10-14 day isolation period or if they would like to reside on campus in isolation housing. Students opting to isolate on campus will receive additional information for how to temporarily relocate, how to access accommodations and what to expect in regard to UW-Green Bay daily staff outreach.
 
Please be aware that antigen testing will be mandatory for all housing residents and staff. Failure to follow the testing schedule and/or compliance with follow-up care could result in initiation of the university conduct process. If you have questions about the testing process, this communication or anything related to COVID-19, you can reach out to the Office of COVID-19 Response at covidresponse@uwgb.edu or by calling 920-465-5060. All housing-specific questions should be directed to the Office of Residence Life at housing@uwgb.edu or 920-465-2040.
