Spring Break- Travel Reminders & Testing Requirements

As Spring Break is quickly approaching both here at UW-Green Bay and local K12 schools, campus community members may look to take time off. It is important that all individuals continue to be diligent in respecting COVID-19 protocols. An outbreak of infection upon return from the break period may prove to be detrimental to the campus, and may result in the disruption of services for the remainder of the academic year. For this reason, students/staff/faculty are being encouraged to forego travel plans, opting instead to remain in the area for Spring Break.

For those who persist with travel plans, please note that air or other mass transit travel remains highly discouraged and may subject the traveler to self-quarantine for 14 days upon return if CDC guidelines are not followed. Per recommendations from public health officials, if travelers choose to travel outside their community or travel using confined means, it remains recommended that contact with non-household members should be limited for 14 days upon return and symptoms should be closely monitored.  More specific information can be found at the Wisconsin Department of Health Webpage: Making Decisions. Prior to any travel, you are encouraged to review the UW-Green Bay Travel Guidelines.

Due to many from the campus community choosing to travel for at least a portion of the break and the risk of introducing the virus to the campus upon return, it is extremely important to resume bi-weekly testing immediately following Spring Break.  It is expected for any Faculty and Staff member needing to enter a campus building once a week or more, that they have tested negative for COVID-19 through a surveillance test or negative through a subsequent confirmation test administered not more than 14 days prior to accessing the campus building. To assist with prompt post-break testing needs, the UW-Green Bay Testing Center will be available at the following times:

          • Sunday, March 21         1:00PM-5:00PM
          • Monday, March 22        7:00AM-4:00PM
          • Tuesday, March 23        7:00AM-4:00PM
          • Wednesday, March 24  7:00AM-4:00PM
          • Thursday, March 25      7:00AM-4:00PM
          • Friday, March 26            8:00AM-NOON

All testing participants should make appointments for testing by utilizing the MyPrevea app or by visiting MyPrevea.com.
