For All Students
Testing Before Arriving on Campus
To protect the health and wellbeing of our campus community, the University is implementing re-entry Coronavirus testing for the Spring 2022 semester.
All unvaccinated students are required to report to the Wellness Center for testing before accessing campus. Walk-in testing is open from 3 to 7 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 9, and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Jan. 10 and 11.
If you have questions please email HealthServices@peace.edu.
If you are vaccinated, please upload your COVID-19 vaccine card to the Magnus Health portal.
Vaccination for COVID-19
The University strongly recommends that all students receive the COVID-19 vaccine before arriving on campus for the Spring 2022 semester. Students who are *fully vaccinated will benefit by being excluded from:
- Required pre-arrival COVID testing to be cleared to access campus
- Surveillance/random COVID testing scheduled during the semester
- Mandatory quarantine requirement if exposed to a COVID positive contact (details on quarantine requirements are outlined below).
When you receive the COVID-19 vaccine before arriving on campus, please upload a screenshot of your vaccine card to the Magnus Health portal (immunization section). To find a convenient location to receive your vaccine, visit www.vaccines.gov.
If you receive positive test results
You are required to immediately notify The Wellness Center at HealthServices@peace.edu for guidance on your return to campus.
Students who test positive are required to remain home for 10 days of isolation (from the date of testing) per CDC guidelines.
Thank you for your cooperation as we continue to work together to keep everyone healthy and our community safe.
