Penn Cares: COVID-19 Testing & Dashboard

All students will be required to undergo COVID-19 testing this semester. Undergraduates must complete two tests per week.  

Students will take saliva-based tests. In contrast to familiar nasal swabs, used for symptomatic and close contact testing, saliva samples are collected non-invasively. Samples are analyzed on or near campus, allowing for more rapid results.
