We’re so excited students will be returning to in-person classes and labs this summer at all Salt Lake Community College campuses. We want to ensure that the college continues to provide the safest learning environment possible as the COVID-19 pandemic extends into its second year.
We have been fortunate that SLCC’s positivity rate has been low since returning to our classrooms. Part of the reason for that low rate has been our vigilance in testing students, staff and faculty and catching cases and isolating them before they turn into an outbreak on campus. On a related note, SLCC will continue, until further notice, to enforce staying masked while indoors with others or when in close proximity to people outdoors on all of its campuses.
We have been asked to continue our testing efforts at least into the summer term. That means any student attending at least one in-person class per week on any SLCC campus must be tested early in the semester. The college will be doing focused testing of specific groups throughout the summer as needed (you will be notified if you are in that group).
The schedule for Summer COVID-19 testing is as follows:
Re-entry Testing: May 18-28
Locations and times:
- Jordan Campus HTC, 233 – Tuesdays, May 18 and 25, 1-6 p.m.
- Taylorsville Bruin Arena Ticket Booth – Wednesdays, May 19 and 26, 1-6 p.m.
- South City Campus, 1-110 – Thursdays, May 20 and 27, 1-6 p.m.
- Miller Campus, PSET, 207 – Monday and Thursday, May 17 and 20, 5-7 p.m.
Students are still being rewarded with $10 on their One Card after they complete a COVID test. Appointments can be made via our online test scheduling tool.
We are looking forward to a safe and productive summer, and we can’t wait to see everyone’s faces (most of, anyway)!
Remember – classes begin May 17, and the last day to add classes is May 25!
