PROCESS FOR ACCESSING CAMPUS, including ordering an at-home COVID-19 test kit

While the process for students, faculty, and staff have differences, each requires both a training module and an at-home COVID-19 test to be completed. Please follow the appropriate process to order the at-home testing, Pixar by LabCorp, and the training:

  • All current essential staff, meaning anyone who has either not worked remotely at all or those who have returned to campus either full-time or part-time must complete the published Return-to-Campus process. The process must be completed no later than August 25, 2020, to maintain access to campus facilities.
  • The Office of the Provost and the academic deans have been working quickly to provide faculty access to classrooms and offices in preparation for remote teaching. Faculty do need to complete the online CU Safely Back training in Canvas prior to accessing campus facilities, and have two weeks to complete their at-home COVID-19 test. This exception was provided to allow expedited access to needed campus facilities as the academic year quickly approaches. Faculty are asked to follow this process to be granted access.
  • For those staff requesting newly recalled staff status for on-campus access, this access is only provided to those performing essential work that cannot be done remotely. The goal is to maintain a low population of employees on campus therefore a strict approval process is followed before granting access to campus facilities. To request newly recalled staff status, please follow the published Return-to-Campus process.
  • For anyone requesting one-time access to campus, please follow the published One-Time Visit process. You must complete all the steps listed, including the at-home COVID-19 test prior to returning to campus, even for a one-time visit, including visits to obtain items from your office. Please note, you will be subscribed to the daily health survey which only needs to be completed on the day(s) you will be on campus.
  • Students follow a similar process to safeguard the health of our entire community, it is important to diligently follow our return-to-campus process for Orange Campus and return-to-campus process for Rinker Campus.

Whether on our campus, in the residence halls, or in the community nearby, it is of great importance that everyone observes the guidelines and behaviors that will help us slow the spread of COVID-19. Chapman students, faculty, and staff on and off the campuses must make every effort to follow established protocols and processes. Doing so is a fundamental commitment to our collective health and will also us to remain together at Chapman.
