Delaware State University is starting its spring semester with new changes to its COVID-19 testing requirements for its staff, students, and faculty. On  January 7th  in a virtual forum , the university announced new testing requirements. Those who are fully vaccinated with their booster shot will test twice a week for the first two weeks of return. Then drop down to once a week. While those vaccinated, but not boosted are to test twice a week. Those unvaccinated will test three times a week. 

The campus community is provided access to COVID-19 testing through DSU’s testing lab on the main and downtown campus. In addition to that, Curative provides on-site testing on campus in the Martin Luther King Student Center for both the DSU and Delaware communities.  

“If would like to get tested at the site please bring your DSU ID. They are requiring that you bring your ID to do walk-up testing,” Tamara Stoner, the university’s Director of Enterprise Risk Management advised during the forum. 

Stoner also added that, “For Curative testing please remember to use your DSU email, so that we can show that you’ve been complying with the testing protocols for this campus community.” 

DSU’s COVID-19 Testing & Vaccination Portal  

If using any non- university testing services including the Curative test results must uploaded to the portal. The DSU community can find weekly COVID-19 testing schedules in their DSU’s emails from  eNews.
