Employee Take-Home Testing Kits and Drop-Off Sites


October 1, 2021

Dear Faculty and Staff colleagues,  

All Dartmouth College faculty and staff are required to participate in COVID testing when working on campus. Those who are vaccinated and are working on-site at least one day a week are required to test once weekly. Those who are unvaccinated (e.g. those with approved exemptions) are required to test twice weekly. The College’s FAQS about employee testing are available here and address questions about testing frequency for those who may be working on-site occasionally.

To support this weekly testing cadence and ensure it is manageable for community members, take-home testing kits are now available. These kits allow community members to participate in self-administered, unobserved testing by returning a completed kit within 12 hours of sample collection at drop-off sites across campus. 

As this take-home testing program is rolled out and deployed into use, here are some important points to be aware of:

We thank you for adhering to Dartmouth’s testing requirements and adapting with us to a new system. 

Please reach out if you have any questions.
