COVID-19 Tests Are Mandatory For All CMU Students + Staff
All students, faculty, and staff at Colorado Mesa University are required to be tested for COVID-19 before returning to CMU in the fall.
Colorado Mesa University is requiring mandatory COVID-19 tests for all of its students, faculty, and staff. According to their website, every member of the CMU community must be tested '3-7 days prior to returning to campus this fall.'
If you refuse to be tested for COVID-19, it will affect your ability to go on campus. All CMU students, faculty, and staff must have proof of a negative COVID-19 test in order to return to campus. Everyone will receive a link to sign up for a coronavirus test from PrimaryBio, CMU's testing partner
Colorado Mesa University has three different COVID-19 testing options which are:
- Grand Junction testing
- Colorado Front Range testing
- At home mail-in testing
One of the options is that the Colorado Mesa University community can be tested on campus, which will be in the Bunting Hall parking lot. There will be a drive-through lane as well as a walk-up lane for COVID-19 tests.
CMU students that live in certain counties on the Front Range have options when it comes to their coronavirus test. They will receive different COVID-19 testing locations and will be able to choose the best fit.
The next option is to get tested for COVID-19 at home. According to Colorado Mesa University's website, at-home test kids will be mailed to students who are eligible. At-home COVID-19 tests must be requested at least 8 days before returning to campus, according to CMU.
Colorado Mesa University has also provided a chart that shows you which day you should get tested for COVID-19 based on the day you're returning to campus. You can find that chart and more information about mandatory COVID-19 testing at CMU here.
