IMPORTANT: COVID-19 testing in the event of curtailment due to snow

Feb. 1, 2021

Dear UNH Durham community,

We are closely watching the approaching inclement weather. Any decision to curtail university operations will be announced by 4 a.m. Tuesday, Feb. 2, via email and RAVE, the university’s emergency notification system. This message confirms that while in-person classes will not occur in the event of curtailment, classes may proceed virtually. It is up to each faculty member to decide; please monitor your email and Canvas.

In the event curtailed operations are enacted:

  • Students living in campus housing can drop off their tests as scheduled Tuesday, Feb. 2, if they are able and feel safe doing so.
  • Students living off campus scheduled to drop off a test on Tuesday, Feb. 2, should resume testing on their next scheduled day.
  • Faculty, staff and contractors scheduled to test on Tuesday, Feb. 2, can drop a sample any other day this week (including today) or resume their normal COVID testing schedule Tuesday, Feb. 9.

Anyone unable to drop a test as scheduled on Tuesday, Feb. 2, will continue to have a valid Wildcat Pass; your Wildcat Pass will not become invalid as a result of a missing test that was due on Tuesday.

The Whittemore Center (test kit distribution) and Dairy Bar (pre-arrival testing) will be closed if the university declares curtailed operations and will re-open Wednesday, Feb. 3, weather permitting.

Stay safe,
