For members of the campus community subject to mandatory testing, Brown has developed a set of criteria to determine testing frequency for groups and individuals based on time spent on campus and the amount of contact with other students, faculty and staff.
High Contact — tested two times per week
- On campus three or more days a week
Regular contact with other students, faculty and staff:
- in-person teaching and/or advising
- supervision of others, including laboratory research
- health care workers, receptionists, dining services, custodial, trades and others who have frequent contact with students and/or student living spaces
- work environments where social distancing is difficult to maintain
Medium Contact — tested one time per week
- On campus two or less days a week
- Teaching remotely
Less regular contact with students, faculty and staff:
- on-campus work in private offices
- on-campus work where social distancing is not difficult to maintain
All individuals will be informed of their classification, and those designated to be tested once a week may opt-in to be tested twice a week if they prefer. Brown’s testing program, including determinations about testing frequency, may continue to evolve in alignment with shifts in public health guidance.
