VLS COVID Testing

Layout Builder

You must be tested bi-weekly to access campus. Testing will be on site and self-administered. The test is the milder anterior nasal swab. In most cases, results will be emailed to you within 24 hours.

If you are not willing to be tested bi-weekly, you will not be allowed on campus.

General Testing Information:

  • Testing will be conducted from 8:10 to 10:30 a.m., Wednesdays in the Nina Thomas Classroom and the Map Room (1st floor Debevoise). 
  • Once you arrive at the testing location, please form a line, six feet apart (floor stickers will be in place to help), and wait for instruction from the collection supervisor.
  • Please make sure you’ve done your daily symptom log on the CampusClear app and keep your mask on at all times.

To Sign up for Testing:

  • Please use the "COVID-19 Testing" TWEN site (no password) and look for the "Schedule A" or "Schedule B" signup sheets.
  • Please make sure you’ve done your daily symptom log on the CampusClear app and keep your mask on at all times.
  • Please remember which schedule you are on, A or B, and be sure to stick to that schedule, or your access to campus will be revoked.

If you are unavailable from 8:10 to 10:30 a.m. on Wednesdays, you must arrange bi-weekly testing with Gifford Medical Center, your healthcare provider, or by visiting one of the pop-up sites. It is your responsibility to email a copy of your results, on time, to COVID19@vermontlaw.edu.

Since we are being tested every-other-week, do I still need to use the CampusClear App?

Yes, anyone wishing to access campus must complete a health screening on the CampusClear app each day they come to campus.

Do I still need to be tested if I've received the vaccine?

The answer, in the short term at least, is yes until VLS receives additional guidance from the state of Vermont.

Will we be notified of positive results in our community?

Yes. If you may have been exposed, you should be contacted by the Vermont Department of Public Health. The number of tests and number of positive results will be recorded on our dashboard which you will find on the COVID page.
