Mandatory Employee Testing

UNCG requires both students and employees to submit vaccination documentation (i.e., vaccination card) or participate in mandatory testing. The mandatory testing frequency will be no more than once a week and will depend on COVID-19 rates on campus and in the community.

Employees need to be completely vaccinated to be exempt from testing. You are considered completely vaccinated following one dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine or following the second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine. Employees log into the UNCG Vaccine Portal to upload proof of vaccination.

Beginning October 18, 2021, faculty, staff, and temporary employees who have not uploaded proof of vaccination will be required to be tested. Employees who are not completely vaccinated will receive an email weekly notifying them of when they are required to get tested.

To fulfill your testing requirements, employees have two options:

  • Testing will be provided at no charge by Mako in the EUC Dail Room on:
    • Mondays, 9 am – 5 pm
    • Tuesdays, 10 am – 6 pm
    • Wednesdays, from 9 am – 5 pm 

Register HERE each week prior to going to the testing site.

You are required to register each week prior to testing. When registering, use your UNCG email address in the Email field and your UNCG ID number in the Student ID or School ID field.  If you do not use your UNCG information your results will not be provided directly to the University and you will be required to upload your results into the COVID-19 Vaccine Portal yourself.

Only employees who do not have symptoms of COVID-19 should get tested at these sessions. If you have COVID-19 symptoms, seek testing using a community-based provider.

  • You may also choose to get a PCR test (not antigen or antibody) off campus. If you do so, you will need to upload the results by 11:59 p.m. on Sunday to UNCG Vaccine Portal.  You will be responsible for any costs incurred.

If you receive a positive test result, do not report to campus (or leave campus immediately) and notify your supervisor. You should also complete a self-reporting form.

If an employee enrolled in the mandatory testing program becomes completely vaccinated and submits their proof of vaccination into the UNCG Vaccine Portal, they will be removed from the testing program and will not be required to be tested.
