Campus testing location

Baseline testing

Before the start of the fall and spring semesters, Colorado Mesa University performed baseline viral testing for all members of the campus community. This strategy required every member of the CMU community (students, faculty and staff) be tested for COVID-19 3-7 days prior to returning to campus.  

Detection testing

CMU also utilizes random sampling for detection testing of students, faculty and/or staff, starting in the fall semester, which now continues throughout the spring semester. Members of the CMU community randomly selected for testing receive a notification via CMU email and/or text message. Testing must be completed that week.
