Will there be weekly on-campus COVID-19 testing for UMaine and UMaine Machias students and employees in the fall semester?

Yes, for individuals who are not fully vaccinated. Weekly testing will be required for students, staff and faculty in the university’s in-person community. Vaccinated persons are currently exempt. Testing also is available for vaccinated asymptomatic community members upon request. People who are symptomatic should seek medical attention from the primary care provider or campus health center.

The university is continuing to monitor the pandemic and further changes in testing and other pandemic protocols are possible as circumstances warrant.
