What is the UTEP Coronavirus Proactive Testing Program?

The UTEP Proactive Coronavirus Testing Program is one important part of our strategy to control the spread of the virus that causes COVID-19 as we transition to face-to-face classes and in-person work. The voluntary testing program will help us quickly identify those who are infected, even if they are not experiencing symptoms, and have them stay home so they do not spread the virus to others. The testing is free to enrolled students and employees who will be on campus, and we are planning to make it fast and convenient.


Notice of Privacy Practices (PDF)

What do I need to know about it?

  • Testing is fast, free, convenient, painless, important and voluntary.
  • UTEP coronavirus testing is for enrolled students and employees who will be on campus during the fall semester and who are NOT experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.
  • Results come back within 24 to 48 hours.
  • Our goal is to maximize testing beginning Aug. 17 in order to offer testing to all students, faculty and staff who will be on campus as soon as possible as the semester starts. The testing program will continue throughout the fall semester.
  • The testing program is an interdisciplinary effort led by faculty in the Border Biomedical Research Center and departments of Biological Sciences, Public Health Sciences and Mathematics. 

 

Testing Program FAQs

Miners take care of Miners!

UTEP's Coronavirus Proactive Testing Program is one way to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 on campus, but we need the participation of our students, faculty and staff who will be on campus this fall. 

 

Additional Resources

All students, faculty and staff who will be on campus during the fall semester will be notified of the voluntary testing program via email and asked to complete a one-time consent form that includes a privacy notice if they would like to participate. In order to make this a successful program, we highly encourage all Miners who will be on campus this fall to participate.

The email will remind you where the testing stations are located and times you can visit within the next week. We are currently planning for four outdoor testing locations: the Fox Fine Arts Complex lower level courtyard, the breezeway between the Engineering and Classroom buildings, the Union breezeway, and the Undergraduate Learning Center patio. Any change in location will be communicated. 

The proactive testing is for students, faculty and staff WITHOUT SYMPTOMS of the disease who will be on campus during the fall semester. If you are sick, STAY HOME.

Tests will be analyzed and results shared with you within 24-48 hours. Each participant will receive an e-mail notification when test results are available. They will log in to a secure website to access the results.

If your test result is negative: No further action will be required. It will still be important to continue with best practices, including wearing face coverings when in common areas, maintaining a minimum separation of six feet between yourself and others, and washing hands frequently.

If your test result is positive: You will be required to stay home and will receive a phone call from a UTEP Environmental Health and Safety employee, who will advise you on next steps. The University will also work to immediately determine if any classmates, instructors, or co-workers may have been exposed. These individuals will be contacted and invited to test. 

If your test result is indeterminate: It is also possible to receive an inconclusive, or indeterminate, result. That means there was not enough material collected during the swabbing process. If this is the case, you will be encouraged to take the test again. 

COVID-19 Illness Reporting: For the safety of the campus community, it is very important to inform the University when you are ill. If you have tested positive or have been exposed to an individual who tested positive for COVID-19, please inform UTEP EH&S at COVIDaction@utep.edu.
