The CBU Compact states that all members of the CBU community “will participate in COVID-19 testing as requested and will undertake daily wellness checks as mandated by the University.”
To mitigate the spread of COVID-19, Christian Brothers University provides on-campus COVID testing for those meeting the following criteria:
- Students who are symptomatic and employees who become symptomatic while on campus
- Student-athletes scheduled under current NCAA guidelines for regular testing
For all other circumstances, CBU community members should seek off-campus COVID testing at one of the many resources in Memphis. A list of current testing options is available at this link.
Anyone experiencing COVID-19 symptoms should remain at home and take the following steps.
- Students who display any symptoms of COVID-19 should immediately contact Health Services at email@example.com (on weekdays between 8:30 am and 4:30 pm) or the Department of Campus Police & Safety at firstname.lastname@example.org (after 4:30 pm on weekdays and on weekends), so immediate medical follow-up can occur to determine if diagnostic testing is necessary.
- Employees should consult with their healthcare provider to determine if they should obtain a COVID-19 test at a local testing facility. They should also contact their supervisor and Human Resources who will advise them on any quarantine requirements or if a negative COVID-19 test result will be required before returning to campus.
CBU is working with our partner, Poplar Healthcare, and the Shelby County Health Department to track all cases, paying special attention to any variants that may arise, so they can be quickly contained.
Promptly upon discovering any symptoms of COVID-19, immediately contact Health Services at email@example.com (on weekdays between 8:30 am and 4:30 pm) or the Department of Campus Police & Safety at firstname.lastname@example.org (after 4:30 pm on weekdays and on weekends), so immediate medical follow-up can occur to determine if diagnostic testing is necessary.
AFTER YOUR TEST
Test results will be provided within 24-72 hours and typically are delivered to your CBU email address.
Those who test positive may be required to comply with CBU quarantine and isolation protocol.
Positive test results will also be reported to the Shelby County Health Department by the testing laboratory. Following this, the Shelby County Health Department will contact you for additional information for contact tracing purposes.
