|Dear University of Miami Student,|
An important step in providing a safe campus environment is reducing the risk of the virus entering our community from the beginning. Recent shifts in modeling suggest that testing all students for COVID-19—including those who reside off campus—prior to their arrival can help safeguard our campus community. Therefore, all students attending in-person classes on the Coral Gables and Marine campuses are required to test negative for COVID-19 before they are allowed to first return to campus. Students attending classes at the Miller School of Medicine will receive separate information.
Review University information for required COVID-19 testing for all students returning to campus
Take the daily symptom checker
Once you have completed your COVID-19 test and received a negative test result, students who will be on campus are required to use a daily symptom checker and respond appropriately to the guidance it provides.
The daily symptom checker takes no more than two minutes to complete and is available online or via the UMiami mobile app (available for download from Google Play (Android) or the
App Store (iPhone/iOS)). There are some specialized symptom checker groups, so please be sure to complete the appropriate daily symptom checker:
If necessary, contact tracing will be initiated
Visit coronavirus.miami.edu for answers to frequently asked questions regarding this testing requirement, as well as for the latest information about the University’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Students who are experiencing COVID-19-related symptoms, or who believe they have been exposed to the virus, are not to come to campus and should call the University’s COVID-19 hotline at 305-243-ONE-U and visit the Student Health Service website for additional COVID-19 information.
If needed, contact tracing will be initiated to identify University of Miami individuals who may have come into contact with an infected person. Contact tracing will be conducted by the University's U-TRACE team for any confirmed cases, and COVID-19-positive individuals will be required to self-isolate.
