The U-M COVID-19 Community Sampling and Tracking Program is a free, opt-in, voluntary surveillance testing program for those on the Ann Arbor campus.
This type of testing plays a critical role in the public health response to COVID-19 and adds to our understanding of how the virus is impacting our campus community. It will provide invaluable data to help identify increases in transmission of the virus and help inform U-M’s response to slow COVID-19 transmission.
Program registration is open to:
- All U-M students who live in on-campus or off-campus housing.
- Faculty and staff, including Michigan Medicine employees, who work on the Ann Arbor campus at least once per week.
Departure testing: CSTP also is offering departure testing for students that are planning to return to their permanent residences. To access this testing, register for the CSTP program below and then sign up for a testing time here. You must register by 5pm the day before your test. Test results take 2-3 days, so please plan ahead. More details on departure testing protocols to follow is here.
To participate, sign up and complete a brief survey. Each week, a group of individuals will be selected and asked to report for in-person COVID-19 testing across campus.
The program is made possible with support from the School of Public Health and University Health Service.
IMPORTANT: The program is not a replacement for symptomatic testing or medical care. Individuals with symptoms of COVID-19 or a close contact exposure should contact Occupational Health Services (faculty and staff), or University Health Service (students).Volunteer for the COVID-19 Sampling & Tracking Program
