Salisbury University's coronavirus testing is on the move.
All COVID-19 tests administered by the university following Thanksgiving break will now be given in Maggs Physical Activities Center.
The change will not take effect until Dec. 1, when all campus community members are required to participate in a mandatory round of testing from Dec. 1 through Dec. 4 after returning to campus from the holiday break.
Tests scheduled for Nov. 23 will still be administered at the former Court Plaza Shopping Center, 1506 S. Salisbury Blvd.
SU President Charles Wight made the announcement during his weekly COVID-19 briefing Thursday, conveying that “the health and safety of our campus and community is our top priority.”
Students, faculty and staff may now schedule their post-Thanksgiving tests here.
SU is scheduled to continue offering its current combination of in-person, fully online and hybrid-formatted instruction after the holiday.
Wight said the university does have contingency plans in place to convert into a fully online format if the risk becomes too great to welcome individuals back to campus after Thanksgiving.
SU has sustained a COVID-19 positivity rate at or below 2% since late September, according to the university’s coronavirus dashboard.
