Dear JMU Student: 

Happy 2022! According to our records, you have submitted a Student Assumption of Risk Waiver or have not completed your COVID-19 Documentation. This email contains testing requirements for the spring semester, so please read it thoroughly.

Entry Testing  
If you are a student living on campus, you must attend testing on campus in Warren Hall 502 one of the following dates:

Jan. 15 9 a.m.-noon

Jan. 16 9 a.m.-noon

Jan. 17 9 a.m.-noon

Jan. 18 9 a.m.-noon


Or you can provide written verification of a negative COVID-19 rapid antigen test performed within 24 hours of arrival on campus, or a negative PCR test obtained within 48 hours of arriving on campus. 

All students living on campus must complete entry testing by 12 p.m. on Jan. 18.

To read more about entry testing, please see here for more information.  

If you are a student living off campus, you do not have an entry testing requirement.  

If you are symptomatic or positive for COVID-19, please remain at home and follow these CDC guidelines. If you need to be tested, you may attend open testing from 9 a.m. - noon in Warren 502. You will need to set an appointment.  

If you’ve been positive within the last 90 days or have been vaccinated, please let the Student COVID-19 Testing Team know at

Regular Screening Testing
At this time, Regular Screening Testing will not be required for students with an Assumption of Risk Waiver on file. If you find yourself symptomatic, we recommend you take advantage of the Open Testing Opportunities.

If you have been recently vaccinated, please upload your vaccination record into MyJMUChart. If you are a student living on campus and have completed your vaccination (two weeks after your second dose of Moderna or Pfizer or single dose of Johnson and Johnson), you do not need to complete entry testing requirements. Please email your records and the team will work with you.  

Additional Important Information
Due to the rapid spread of the Omicron variant, the JMU community is expected to have an increased number of COVID-19 cases this spring. Those who are not vaccinated are at highest risk of contracting the virus and becoming seriously ill. We encourage you use mitigation strategies to keep yourself and our community safe.  

We are looking forward to welcoming everyone in our community back to campus this spring. If you have any questions, please reach out to Wishing you a safe and healthy spring semester.
