What do we need to know about COVID-19 testing on campus for the fall semester?
UMaine Machias’ phase nine, return-to-campus COVID-19 asymptomatic T3 saliva testing is Sept. 7–Dec. 14 for students and employees. Testing will be 9 a.m.–noon on Tuesdays and 2–5 p.m. on Thursdays in the Clipper Lounge in Sennett Hall.
Those with an in-person presence on the UMaine Machias campus or at a university-affiliated facility/research site who are not fully vaccinated and verified, as well as those who have a vaccination exemption, are required to participate. A person is considered fully vaccinated two weeks after the second dose of a two-dose vaccine or two weeks after a single-dose vaccine. Full vaccination is verified by uploading vaccination cards in PointNClick, the University of Maine System online COVID-19 portal
Those required to participate in weekly testing will schedule their test appointment days and times every week by logging into the University of Maine System PointNClick portal. T3 saliva test results are typically available within 36 hours in PointNClick.
Please bring your MaineCard to your weekly testing appointment.
Fully vaccinated and verified members of the UMaine community also can participate in the on-campus asymptomatic testing.
Being fully vaccinated with vaccination information uploaded to PointNClick exempts members of the UMaine community from phase nine weekly testing.
