Student COVID-19 Testing Relocation to Student Health Services (SHS)

Dear Scripps Students, Faculty, and Staff:

Beginning Monday, October 11, weekly scheduled COVID-19 testing for Scripps College students will be administered solely by Student Health Services (SHS). As of this date, student testing at the Scripps College 240 House will be discontinued.

Relocating student testing to SHS will streamline students’ access to testing and align Scripps’ student testing protocols with those of most of the other Claremont Colleges. We are making this change to increase students’ compliance with the College’s weekly testing requirement, which is essential to protecting the ongoing health and safety of our entire community.

All Scripps community members, including students, are still required to enroll in the Healthfully app for symptom checking, contact tracing, and email notifications. Faculty and staff will continue to test weekly at Scripps College’s 240 House, located at 240 E. 11th Street.

Scripps students can expect to receive an email tomorrow from Dean Adriana di Bartolo-Beckman with detailed information about the transition to SHS testing. For additional information about COVID-19 testing protocols and SHS, please visit the College’s Scripps Strong site.
