To safeguard community health in Bryan-College Station, the COVID-19 testing requirement that previously applied only to Texas A&M University employees has now been extended to campus-based AgriLife Extension and AgriLife Research personnel.
As per this new requirement, all AgriLife Extension and AgriLife Research employees based on campus must undergo a COVID-19 PCR test by January 29 and provide the results by February 2, 2021.
In the next few days, AgriLife Extension and AgriLife Research employees based on campus will receive a personalized email with a link to the secure Texas A&M COVID-19 Testing Program portal. The email will provide instructions about scheduling an on-campus test January 25–29 or uploading test results. Uploading test results will be applicable for employees who have had a positive COVID-19 test result since October 20 and are now symptom-free, and those who have already had a COVID-19 PCR test since January 2, 2021.
- Do NOT forward the registration email, as it is only meant for you.
- This is a three-step process: Register through a personalized link sent to your email; complete the health survey mentioned in that email; and get tested. If tested by your doctor or elsewhere off campus, there’s a fourth step: Upload the medical record or laboratory record. Follow directions outlined in your email with the unique link related to mandatory testing.
- If you have further questions, please see the Texas A&M University testing FAQs but ignore the Texas A&M deadline. Unlike Texas A&M University employees, AgriLife Extension and AgriLife Research personnel have until January 29 to be tested and until February 2 to upload documentation, if applicable.
