SU COVID-19 Testing Information
This page will be updated as information changes. The dashboard below is updated as new information is available, usually a few days after each testing day.
COVID-19 testing is an important part of SU’s ongoing health and safety measures. This dashboard reports results of SU-administered testing for the campus community. It was created by the Eastern Shore Regional GIS Cooperative at Salisbury University.
Please note: The positivity rate for Salisbury University is calculated weekly based on the number of people tested (Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center Methodology), which is different from the Maryland State methodology that bases the positivity rate on tests administered. To learn more please visit the Joint Explainer on Positivity Rate from the Maryland Department of Health and the Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center.
Each week on a rotating basis, approximately 25 percent of the campus community will be asked to register for a testing time and be given a deadline to complete that testing in order to maintain access to SU facilities. All tests will be conducted at the former Court Plaza shopping center (1506 S. Salisbury Blvd.).
In addition to those who are being randomly selected each week, SU’s COVID-19 testing is open to students and employees who are symptomatic; are asymptomatic but may have been exposed; or are interested in getting tested for any other reason.
Those who have tested positive within the past 90 days should plan to participate in the weekly testing and monitor their SU email for additional instructions. Students who tested positive and are in isolation during their assigned testing week should not schedule a test.
Students and employees will now be able to self-swab. Those who do not want to self-swab should select a time that says “staff swab” when scheduling their appointment. Please view these instructions for self-swabbing in advance.
