Phase three testing information and forms

What do I need to know about phase three surveillance testing on campus, Sept. 14 through late November? 

In the interest of community safety and well-being, University of Maine COVID-19 phase three surveillance testing is mid-September through late November. Members of the UMaine community selected to participate through random sampling every 10 days receive an email from um.covidtesting@maine.edu. 

The PCR diagnostic test, the same used for students in phases one and two, will be administered at Alfond Arena under the UMS ConvenientMD/Jackson Laboratory partnership and is at no cost to employees and students.

All members of the UMaine community who are being tested must bring a Maine Card. Please follow the signs to the northwest entrance of Alfond Arena, closest to College Avenue.

The test entails an anterior nasal 1 cm to 1.5 cm inside the nostril or oral pharyngeal swab to the back of the mouth. No post-test quarantine is required.

Test results will be available through the same ConvenientMD Patient Results Portal used in UMaine testing phases one and two: patientresults.convenientmd.com/UMS. (Username is your @maine.edu email address; use Reset Password to create a password.)
