FSU Testing Protocol Expanded to Twice a Week

February 2nd, 2021 by WCBC Radio

Frostburg State University’s COVID-19 testing protocol has been expanded so that all eligible students and employees will now test twice EVERY week. The ability to offer additional testing is a result of the efficiency in setting up and running the university’s testing system, as well as working with other state universities and the University System of Maryland office. The additional tests will provide a stronger dataset for one of the indicators we are using to monitor and respond to the pandemic. See details below.  


Testing Dashboard Update:

Aggregate testing data will be sent to campus and posted every Tuesday during the semester. Testing data is among the several key COVID-19 indicators the University is monitoring to determine the raising or lowering of our institutional recovery response levels.
