Notice for Residence Hall Students:

Recently Millersville University has seen a dramatic spike in positive COVID cases. Because of this and for our community’s health and safety, the University will be conducting mandatory COVID testing for all students residing in the residence halls. Students should anticipate being tested every two weeks until further notice. Millersville’s testing protocol is consistent with many other campuses across Pennsylvania and the nation.

Moving forward, you will receive an email giving you specific days/times when you can sign up for the testing. Please follow the instructions in the email.

If the days/times conflict with academic classes, an internship or work, please communicate that information to reportcovid@millersville.edu. If you were tested on campus in the past seven (7) days you are exempt until the following week. You are also exempt from testing if you tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 12 weeks.

This testing is NOT for students with symptoms or if you are in quarantine or are isolating. If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 or had significant contact with an individual who has tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 14 days, please contact MU Health Services at (717) 871-5250.

Please continue to view the University’s Coronavirus page for updates and check your student email account.

We appreciate your help and compliance with this process as we work to keep everyone in the residence halls healthy and safe.
