We recently learned the following new information regarding student COVID-19 testing post-Thanksgiving:

• Students who live in residence halls will continue to be tested weekly.
• Students who live off campus will not be required to take regular COVID-19 tests, even if they are student employees.

We can encourage our student employees to opt-in for volunteer testing at go.osu.edu/winterbreak_testing. Students who opt-in for testing will not be required to quarantine while awaiting results. Please note, we cannot require students to opt-in for testing.

Please continue to ensure student employees are completing the daily health check for days that they report to campus.
