Requirements: Symptom Checks and COVID-19 Tests

Here is the current status of the requirements and recommendations for Asymptomatic and Symptomatic COVID-19 Testing. Please review and consider what cohort you fall into and plan accordingly. If you fall into a mandated testing cohort, you are expected to participate. If you fall into the voluntary cohort, you are still strongly encouraged to participate.
