COVID-19 Response


Vaccine Requirement Update:
A reminder that the University of Pittsburgh’s vaccine requirement goes into effect Dec. 6, 2021. Anyone who has not uploaded proof of vaccination or gotten an approved exemption by that time may lose access to the University community. Refer to the FAQs on coronavirus.pitt.edu, as they are regularly updated. Exemption requests are being reviewed on a case-by-case basis by the Office for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (OEDI). Exemption requests must be submitted online. Pitt-Greensburg's webpage also provides details on current COVID-19 guidelines and protocols.

On-Campus COVID Testing continues:
Since Wednesday, October 20, and continuing throughout the semester, we will have an on-campus covid testing site available for students, faculty, and staff who need to submit a Quest PCR test to maintain compliance with the University of Pittsburgh requirement for non-vaccinated individuals.  The on-campus covid tests are for asymptomatic individuals only. We still expect all such members of our community to order their tests as previously instructed:
 
Students, to order a test kit delivered to your address click here:
https://patient.questdiagnostics.com/pitt-COVID-testing
Faculty/Staff, to order a test kit delivered to your address click here: 
http://patient.questdiagnostics.com/backtoschool-testing-registration-PCR-only?programid=upitt-staf
 
However, if you have not received your test kit in a timely fashion, or for some other reason were unable to complete a weekly test, please come to our testing site as follows:

Location: Lynch Hall 106 (there are signs directing you to the testing site)
Day/Time: Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 10:00-2:00

A staff member will be there to assist you with the testing protocol and will collect the testing materials when you complete the process.  If you have not already done so, please register with Quest ahead of time which will save you from waiting and registering at the testing site, this is encouraged, but not required.    Unvaccinated or undisclosed individuals are required by the University to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test between Monday-Saturday every week of the term. 

Please use this resource as needed to stay in compliance with the mandatory testing regimen.  Thank you for your attention to this critical issue.

Please visit our webpage to access the most up-to-date information about Pitt-Greensburg's COVID-19 protocols, as well as our Health & Safety Guidelines.

The most recent CMRO Update is now available.
There will be no CRMO Update published during the Thanksgiving holiday.
