COVID-19 response weekly update: Week of November 30

COVID-19 response weekly update

November 30, 2020

Dear colleagues,

I hope you had a restful Thanksgiving weekend. For those of you who are part of our regular testing cohort, we’ll be operating a normal testing schedule this week. If you’re not part of our regular testing cohort but you had any significant contact with other people over the last five days, please schedule a test. The scheduling process can be accessed at

If you’re experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 or believe that you’ve been exposed to someone who’s positive, don’t sign up through the regular testing process. We have a special process for anyone who’s symptomatic. Fill out a health report form and you’ll be guided through the testing process by someone from the Contract Tracing Team.

For additional questions about testing, please contact the Rice Community Information Center at (713) 348-4224 (Monday through Friday, 8 a.m.- 4 p.m.) or

Kevin Kirby
Chair of the Crisis Management Advisory Committee
Vice President for Administration
