What do I need to know about phase seven COVID-19 asymptomatic testing on campus, and at UMaine offices and facilities statewide? Do I still have to test weekly if I’m fully vaccinated?

Phase seven COVID-19 asymptomatic testing on our campuses and at UMaine facilities statewide begins next week and continues throughout the summer. All UMaine and UMM community members who submit bona fide verification of vaccination can be exempted from asymptomatic testing by uploading their vaccination cards to the UMS PointnClick Web App (https://umaineportal.pointnclick.com). At UMaine, weekly COVID testing at Alfond Arena is scheduled from noon–5 p.m. Tuesdays and 6:30 a.m.–noon Wednesdays for students and employees with a campus presence and /or working on campus. Your COVID-19 testing appointment is scheduled and UMS COVID-19 Summer Testing consent form is completed by login into PointnClick. The UMS Summer Testing consent form is accessed from the left hand side drop down menu, select forms and complete. Then select the blue box labeled “Schedule a COVID-19 Testing appointment,” and follow the instructions to schedule your appointment date and time.  Second- and third-shift workers should coordinate testing appointments and completing the UMS COVID-19 Summer Testing consent form with their supervisors. Anyone working at UMaine sites statewide will continue to participate in prearranged asymptomatic testing unless exempted by proof of vaccination. If you continue COVID-19 testing for the summer, you must complete the UMS COVID-19 Summer Testing consent form. For help with PointnClick, email help@maine.edu. The summer testing schedule is subject to change.
