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.
To maintain access to SU facilities, all faculty and staff are required to complete an SU-administered COVID-19 test with a negative result every 30 days.
All students, faculty and staff are responsible for self-scheduling tests through the Calendly website. This is not automated. At this time, SU is unable to accept non-SU test results. Those who do not have a new SU-administered test showing a negative result on file with Campus Health every 30 days will lose access to campus buildings, including classrooms and offices.
Students, faculty and staff also may elect to have tests at more frequent intervals than the required 30 days, especially if they show signs of COVID-19 symptoms.
Beginning November 30, 2020, and continuing into the spring semester, SU community members who have tested positive for COVID-19 at any time will receive a 30-day exemption from the testing requirement beginning with the day they tested positive. There are no other exemptions.
Students and employees are able to self-swab at the SU testing site. Those who do not want to self-swab should select a time that says “staff swab” when scheduling their appointment. Please view the video below with instructions for self-swabbing in advance.
