Human Resource Services has issued an update concerning employee testing and a new COVID-19 scheduler tool. The message reads as follows:
We continue to enhance our testing resources to make mandatory testing even more convenient for our on-campus employees. In addition to the SAC Ballroom, we added two additional testing sites: the HSC Galleria and the Southampton Campus Student Center. We also opened reservations for pooled testing, no longer requiring you to first receive an email invitation designating a specific testing day and time.
We have now taken it a step further with the release of the new Saliva Pooled Test COVID-19 Scheduler Tool, which enables employees to:
- View and reserve a convenient appointment time and select the most convenient of three locations.
- Identify appointment times when the testing schedule may be less busy.
- Receive an email indicating appointment time and location to serve as a reminder.
- Simply choose a new date/time if there’s a need to reschedule.
How to Access the COVID-19 Scheduler Tool:
Effective immediately, all West Campus, HSC, Renaissance SOM (non-clinicians) and Stony Brook Southampton Campus State and RF employees are able to use their NetID/NetID Password to access the COVID-19 Scheduler Tool and reserve a testing location, date and time.
Employees should schedule tests frequently, with every other week being our current best practice.
