As mentioned in President Englert's June 18 announcement, unvaccinated faculty and staff coming to campus as part of their work schedule or for other purposes will be required to be tested for COVID-19 beginning the week of July 19.

If you are fully vaccinated, please enter your Covid-19 immunization information to the Patient Health Portal--> Immunizations, then upload your Covid Vaccination record under Uploads.

If you are interested in receiving the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine, please go to: to choose your appointment date and time and schedule the appointment.

If you believe you have received this e-mail in error or have other questions, please contact us at 215-204-2679.

If you are coming to campus, you will receive an email informing you of your testing requirement. Unvaccinated employees will be required to test once per week.


Appointments are required for all tests! Walk-in appointments are NOT available. This is to help keep you safe by avoiding lines or crowding at the testing sites. Use the Patient Health Portal to schedule your appointment.

As a general rule, if you have tested positive in the past 90 days, you should not be tested and are excluded from the mandatory requirements detailed below.

During the summer, there are three testing sites open:

Mitten Hall is located at the Great Court. This site will be open Monday through Thursday, from 9:00 am until 3:00 pm.

Student Faculty Center (HSC campus- corner of Broad and Ontario Streets) in Room 109. This site is open Monday through Thursday, from 8:00 am until 3:00 pm.

School of Podiatric Medicine located in the Podiatry Residence Hall, Room 126. This site is open Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 8:00 am until 3:00 pm.

Testing at these sites is reserved for asymptomatic employees. Do not schedule an appointment at these sites if you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms. Instead please call Employee Health 215-204-2679.

As always, the four public health pillars: wearing a mask, washing your hands, keeping six feet of physical distance and monitoring your health are the best ways to prevent yourself and the broader Temple community from contracting the virus. Please continue practicing these behaviors now and throughout the spring semester. Combined with our testing program, this is the best way for us to be together.
