Campus testing location

baseline testing

before the start of the fall semester, colorado mesa university performed baseline viral testing for all members of the campus community. this strategy required every member of the cmu community (students, faculty and staff) be tested for covid-19 3-7 days prior to returning to campus. 

details on spring semester baseline testing will be published in january. 

detection testing

at the start of fall classes, cmu began utilizing random sampling for detection testing of students, faculty and/or staff which continued throughout the fall semester. members of the cmu community randomly selected for testing receive a notification via cmu email and/or text message. testing must be completed that week.
