COVID-19 Testing Moving to Voluntary, Symptomatic Only


Clemson University officials, in accordance with recommendations from public health experts, announce that, beginning April 2, employees and students will no longer be required to test for COVID-19. Testing will remain available for voluntary testing and those experiencing symptoms. As shown on University’s COVID dashboard, the number of positive tests among the community, faculty, staff and students, and students in isolation and quarantine have continued to decline.

Voluntary testing will continue at Littlejohn Coliseum on main campus, in the community and at Clemson site locations. Please visit the testing information page on the University’s website for up-to-date hours and location information. 

Note for the next two weeks, please refer to the COVID-19 Clearance Status Tool for short-term information on the next test-by date (through April 1).

As announced previously, masks are required only in medical facilities (including testing locations) and, through April 18 in alignment with federal transportation requirements, on public transportation. Individuals exiting isolation and quarantine are still required to mask for five days. Masks in other locations on campus and sites are voluntary.

University health experts and leadership will continue to monitor COVID-19 daily. Should any significant developments occur, the University will issue updated guidance.
