Townhouse & Non-Divisional 81st Street Employees
Gateway COVID-19 Testing

Employees who have not submitted a gateway test following winter break are required to submit an independent COVID-19 test. See details on off-campus testing

When is gateway testing for Townhouse and non-divisional 81st Street employees?

If you are a non-remote employee, are two ways to complete your gateway testing:

  1. Calhoun will offer an opportunity to complete saliva gateway testing on campus, at 81st Street, on Thursday, January 7.

  2. You may obtain a test on your own so long as the test is administered on or after Wednesday, January 6 and submitted to Calhoun by 5pm on Sunday, January 10. You can search for NYS testing locations by zip code here

Important Notes

Calhoun’s surveillance saliva testing may not be used to test out of any kind of quarantine—whether imposed by the Department of Health in response to an exposure, or to end a post-travel quarantine under NYS travel regulations.

Thank you in advance for your support of Calhoun and our commitment to creating a healthy and safe experience for our students, faculty, staff and administrators.
