On-Campus COVID Testing Now Available to SLCC Employees


In support of Utah’s efforts to increase COVID-19 testing in the community, starting Dec. 7 on-campus testing will be available to all SLCC employees, both full-time and part-time, who are working on campus one day or more per week. Testing is currently by appointment only and takes place in the Student Center at the Taylorsville Redwood and South City campuses. Testing hours are subject to frequent changes driven by demand, but the most current schedule can be found by checkin the SLCC COVID-19 Testing Scheduling Tool. A few things to keep in mind if you plan to take advantage of this resource:


  • Testing for employees is permitted every 14 days. Appointments can be made online here.
  • Testing is only for those who are asymptomatic. If you are experiencing any signs of COVID-19, find an alternate testing location on Utah’s COVID-19 website. Everyone who participates in on-campus testing will be screened for symptoms upon arrival.
  • On-campus COVID testing takes about 2 minutes. Test results will be emailed to you the same day you are tested.
  • If you work on campus, you are not required to participate in the testing program. The college is making this service available for you to use as you see fit.
  • There is no cost to either employees or students for on-campus testing.
  • Testing will not be available during the holiday break and whenever campus is closed, but testing will be available Jan. 5-7. Expanded testing hours will be offered the first few weeks of January, as we would like to test as many people who work or study on campus as possible. Please see our blog post on testing details that will be in effect after the holiday break.

College Planning for Students on Campuses this Fall

Students – we have greatly missed them in our classrooms and labs. We can’t wait to see them back on our campuses. But we want to see students return only with their health and safety as our highest priority.   With that, our plan is to welcome students back in time for the start of this coming fall semester with in-person and, as always, a wide variety of online class offerings. We will continue to monitor guidelines issued by the state and the Utah System of Higher Education (USHE), and, if there are any changes to this plan, we will notify students immediately.   USHE recently issued a press release with a COVID-19 update, which can be found here . For a full recap of USHE’s detailed plans, click here .   USHE institutions, including SLCC, are currently working on what a return to campus will look and feel like this fall. Those details continue to evolve based on factors like “disease prevalence,” diagnostic testing supplies, contact tracing and the ability to provide “adequate” sup

COVID-19 Testing for Students at SLCC

The following email sent to all current SLCC students was updated Dec. 4, 2020.  Dear SLCC Students,   I am asking for your help. It’s no secret that Utah is in crisis due to the massive, recent surge in COVID-19 cases. This surge is creating a dire situation for our hospitals where their ability to provide emergency treatment or intensive care is becoming severely limited.    As a student at Salt Lake Community College, you have an extraordinary opportunity to help reverse this troubling trend and have a real and positive impact on the health of all Utahns. Since many of you are already coming to campus, and so many in your age group are asymptomatic, SLCC is joining other Utah colleges and universities to test all college students attending in-person classes this fall. Here’s how it will work: Students who are 18 or older and who attend at least one in-person class this semester are being offered tests, which should be done every 14 days.  Testing will take place at the Taylorsville
