This page provides a reference for key dates and information on scheduled COVID testing for members of the Bryn Mawr College community. Dates and details may change.
Testing groups: Students are grouped into three cohorts (Groups A, B, and C), and one cohort is tested each week on a three-week rotation. The College also provides testing for faculty and staff who are regularly on campus and who volunteer to be tested. Those whose work involves regular, sustained, in-person interactions with other community members (Group 1) are offered testing every two weeks, while those who do not have such interactions (Group 2) are offered monthly testing opportunities. For more details about student groups, contact the Health and Wellness Center; for more details about employee testing, contact Environmental Health and Safety.
