The test is an Active Infection Swab Test that determines whether you have an active COVID-19 infection. This self-administered PCR test uses an Anterior Nares Nasal Swab and is the least invasive swab test available. You must send your test via FedEx back to Quest Diagnostics immediately. Quest will provide additional collection instructions in the kit. After you return your test to Quest, Quest will notify you of your results. You will receive an email prompting you to sign in to MyQuest to view your results. Check your junk or spam folder in case the email appears there.
If your entry test is negative, you may return to campus. Residential students should still self-quarantine for two weeks before their arrival.
If your entry test is positive, do not return to campus or attend any LVC-related activities. You will be able to return to campus 10 days after your test date if you have had no new or worsening symptoms. LVC will contact you regarding isolation and requirements for returning. Students who cannot return to campus until after classes start should let their professors know you will begin classes remotely.
