How saliva screening samples are processed

Screening at CSU is available only to our students, faculty and staff; CSU does not offer screening to the public or to anyone who is not a student, faculty or staff member, with the exception of immediate adult family members of students who are living in specifically Aggie Family or University Village. Those family members must bring a photo ID to the screening site. University Housing has provided a list of eligible adult family members to the screening site; showing an ID verifies eligibility. 

  • Any student, faculty or staff member who is not required to screen may still participate in screening as often as they wish, including employees who do not work in Larimer County, such as Extension, Forest Service and Agricultural Experiment Station employees.
  • CSU does not charge students, faculty and staff to screen.
  • CSU COVID-19 Health and Safety University Policy

Alert CSU through the COVID Reporter when:

  • Any student, faculty or staff member who is experiencing symptoms, believes they may have been exposed, or is concerned about their work, living or academic environment should report through the COVID Reporter and should not go to the saliva screening location. A public health official will follow up and arrange a nasal swab test.
  • Have been tested for COVID-19 and the results were positive
  • Are in the process of being tested because public health officials believe you may have COVID-19
  • Are living with a COVID-19 positive person
  • If you believe you have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 as a close contact
  • You must report to the COVID reporter regardless of whether or not you are working or studying on university grounds

The following students, faculty and staff are required, per university policy, to screen weekly:

Students

  • All students who are in any face-to-face or hybrid course
  • All students living in university housing (regardless of whether or not they are in a face-to-face or hybrid course)
  • All students living in a fraternity or sorority house (regardless of whether or not they are in a face-to-face or hybrid course)

Employees

  • All faculty, instructors and graduate teaching assistants who are teaching a hybrid or face-to-face course or lab
  • All staff who are regularly, physically on a CSU campus or other university grounds in Larimer County (including research staff)

Exemptions from Mandatory Screening

  • Students who are taking online classes only and who are not living in university housing or a fraternity or sorority house, and employees who are working remotely exclusively and are not regularly on a campus or CSU worksite in Larimer County are not expected to screen on this schedule. It is, however, permissible for individuals in these latter groups to occasionally visit university grounds for very brief periods of time, such as to pick up mail, a file or library materials, and not be screened weekly.
  • Anyone who has tested positive in the last 90 days by testing at a CSU testing site OR who has submitted proof of a positive test from a non-CSU site to CSU Public Health should not screen until 90 days have passed since their positive test. Screening within 90 days of a positive test often results in another positive test result (and the individual is no longer considered COVID positive).
