Coronavirus testing is well underway on the Rice campus. All students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to sign up for testing based on direction from their leadership groups. Our testing strategy and execution remains a work in progress, and the Crisis Management Team is working diligently to make the process as streamlined as possible. Testing is not a panacea. What comes before the testing (preventive measures) and what comes after a positive test (acting quickly to isolate, treat, contact trace, and quarantine) are more important measures. The university is taking a systematic approach, which is the best practice for creating an environment that will mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
