Antigen Tests Available for Front Line Employees

The University has been able to secure the ability to provide COVID-19 antigen tests to employees who are at risk of exposure based on their job duties.  At-risk employees are those who perform on campus work and engage in frequent face-to-face contact with members of the campus community; have direct and ongoing student contact; or provide essential services on a campus location, and/or are assigned to perform COVID-19 testing for members of the campus community.  Examples of at risk positions include custodians, GBOSS employees, instructors providing face-to-face teaching, and University Police.  Employees who are deemed “at risk of exposure” and desire to have a COVID-19 test can schedule bi-weekly antigen test through the MyPrevea App and have the testing conducted in the turf gym of the Kress Event Center.  There is no requirement that you participate in testing.  Results will be provided to the employee.  Notification of positive antigen tests will be provided to Human Resources who will provide assistance in managing modifications in performance of duties. In the event of a positive antigen test, the employee should immediately contact their medical service provider for follow-up.

At this time testing is only available at the Testing Center located at the Kress Event Center on the Green Bay Campus. The University continues to work with Prevea Health to make antigen tests available at clinics located in Sheboygan, Marinette and Manitowoc,

Because of the limitations of available tests, it is asked that employees limit their testing to once every two weeks.  In the event that additional tests become available more frequent testing and expansion of employees eligible for testing may be implemented.
