To continue efforts to help reduce the spread of COVID-19, Rowan University will offer free coronavirus testing to all students and employees before Thanksgiving Day. Saliva and nasal tests are available to all students starting the week of November 16. Currently, 4,100 students live on Rowan’s campus and approximately 2,000 students live nearby in Glassboro. Employees will be able to request home test kits.
Students who test positive for the virus will be offered the opportunity to isolate on campus in Triad Hall, the residence building set aside for isolation throughout the semester. The University will continue to provide health monitoring and meals for students in Triad, according to Woodside.
Students who choose to remain on campus or nearby over the Thanksgiving weekend will be able to enjoy activities the Division of Student Life is hosting, including a Thanksgiving Day meal and outdoor, in-person programs, based on public health considerations. Dining services also will be available through the weekend.
