Our top priority is the safety and well-being of our community members. In addition to enhanced cleaning and safety protocols, we are implementing preventative measures to help keep our community safe.

Every student, faculty, and student-facing employee returning to campus are required to participate in Regis’ mandatory weekly COVID-19 testing using a PCR nasal swab.

What to Expect During Testing

There is no cost to get tested, and all tests will be administered by Health Services. The process is quick, painless, and an important part of the university's campus safety protocol. Santi Pedraza Novak '23 takes us through the testing process in the brief video below.

Watch How the Testing Process Works

CoVerified: COVID-19 Testing App

Beginning Monday, March 1, all students, faculty, and staff in the Regis College COVID-19 testing protocol will use an app called CoVerified to:

  • Book testing appointments
  • Receive notice of negative test results
  • Log and update your daily symptoms

Download CoVerified

Be advised, the current booking system will shut down on Sunday, February 28, and all appointments will be canceled.

Failure to complete your weekly test, track your symptoms, or if you receive a positive test, will result in a restriction from classes, events, and campus facilities as a red “restricted” screen will appear.

How to use the app

  • Log in using your Regis username and password unless you utilize another email address to access your test results through the current system.
  • Select the same appointment time and day for each week.
  • Book appointments through the last week you are scheduled to be on campus.
  • Track your daily symptoms.
  • Click the “Testing” button and the small calendar in the upper right corner to book your tests.
  • Select the same appointment time and day for each week.
  • Utilize the green “cleared” screen on your phone or device for clearance around campus.

COVID-19 testing appointments can be scheduled during the following time frames for community members who have been invited to campus in the spring semester:

  • Monday through Friday: 8 a.m. to noon, 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.
    • Appointments are not available between noon and 1 p.m. on weekdays to allow for a cleaning break in the testing center
  • Saturdays: noon to 3 p.m.

Daily Health Screenings

Everyone in the Regis campus testing protocol is required to complete their daily symptom screening on the CoVerified app.

Failure to complete symptom tracking every day will result in a restriction from classrooms, events, and campus facilities as a red “restricted” screen will appear.

Once the daily symptom screening is complete, in addition to compliance with the weekly testing protocol and no positive test results, a green "cleared" screen will appear.

  • Commuter Students

    • Upon entering the testing protocol, you will be required to test weekly to remain in compliance.

    • Massachusetts residents are not required to complete a PCR COVID-19 test prior to coming to campus. However, we ask that you limit contact with others out of an abundance of caution prior to obtaining your negative test result from Regis’ testing center.

      • In quarantine, you can only leave your housing assignment for emergency purposes or to utilize the restroom. We recommend that you come prepared with meals/snacks if needing to quarantine.
    • You are required to come in for testing every week in order to remain in compliance and to support Regis’ efforts to protect the community: Any student found to be violating Regis College's COVID-19 policies and expectations, such as missing their testing appointment, will face conduct sanctions up to and including removal from housing.

They may return to work upon receiving a negative test result.
