For all Broadies

  • Testing: Testing is optional beginning Monday, October 3.
    • If you have tested positive please follow the guidelines here
    • If you are close contact please follow the guidelines here.
  • Free antigen tests: Broadies can pick up at-home rapid antigen test kits free of charge in Olympus (the Merkin Building testing site) during staffed testing hours between Monday, October 31-Friday, November 4 and Monday, December 5-Friday, December 9. For Broadies planning to attend the Retreat, we suggest picking up a test the first week in December and testing yourself before you head out to the Hynes.
