COVID-19 Testing During Winter Break

By Dateline Staff on December 15, 2020 in University

The COVID-19 testing kiosk in the Activities and Recreation Center, or ARC — for employees and students — will be closed Dec. 21 to Jan. 1 for the winter holidays and curtailment, with the exception of a half day, 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, Dec. 26.

During the closure:

  • The testing question will be removed from the Daily Symptom Survey.
  • Employees and students may use the Healthy Davis Together testing kiosks at the Davis Senior Center in downtown Davis or in the lobby of the Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts on campus. Appointments for these kiosks must be arranged through the Healthy Davis Together website.

Before and after the winter break, the Healthy Davis Together kiosks are for community members only — and employees and students must go to the ARC kiosk for testing.

Before and after the break

The ARC kiosk is keeping regular hours through this Sunday, Dec. 20, and those same hours will resume Saturday, Jan. 2. Employees regularly accessing campus facilities will have until Thursday, Jan. 7, to resume weekly testing in order to comply with campus policy.

The kiosk’s regular hours are:

  • Seven days a week — 8 a.m.-5 p.m.
  • Extended hours Wednesday — 6 a.m.-6 p.m.

Appointments required through the Health-e-Messaging portal.
