Summer Changes to UAlbany's Surveillance Testing Procedures

May 25, 2022

Dear UAlbany community,

Please note that our COVID-19 surveillance testing procedures have been revised for Summer 2022 in the following ways:

  • Starting immediately, test kit pick-up locations and saliva sample drop box locations have been updated. There will be fewer test kit pick-up locations and sample drop boxes to reflect our campuses’ reduced summer occupancy.

  • Starting the week of May 30:

    • Samples will be picked up on the Uptown and Downtown campuses after 8 a.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please submit saliva samples Monday through 8 a.m. Thursday to ensure weekly participation. 

    • Samples will be picked up once a week, at 8 a.m. Tuesdays, on the Health Sciences Campus. Please submit saliva samples any time Monday and no later than 8 a.m. Tuesday to ensure weekly participation. 

Thank you for your support while UAlbany continues to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. Have a safe summer, Great Danes!
