The fall semester is quickly approaching. With just a month left before classes at Salisbury University begin, the University System of Maryland, which includes Maryland's public colleges such as SU, is making preparations for students to return to its college campuses.
One of these preparations is COVID-19 testing. On Thursday, July 30, the University System of Maryland announced that it will require all on-campus students and employees to receive COVID-19 testing before coming to campus.
A statement from the University System of Maryland reads, "COVID-19 testing is mandatory for all USM on-campus students and employees. Anyone returning in-person to a USM institution must be tested for COVID-19 within 14 days prior to their arrival, and must provide university officials confirmation of a negative COVID test result."
The statement also went on to note that those who test positive for COVID-19 will not be allowed to come to campus and that some universities within the University System of Maryland are conducting testing themselves as employees and students get to campus.
