Penn Students Will be Required to Take 2 COVID-19 Tests Before the Start of the Fall Semester!
Looks like the University of Pennsylvania is taking no chances this fall semester when it comes to COVID-19. In a recent policy change, UPenn is now requiring all students to take at least two COVID-19 tests prior to the start of the semester.
Both on-campus and off-campus students fall under this new rule. Penn plans to mail out tests to each student for an at-home COVID-19 test. Then each student will be required to take an additional test once they arrive on campus.
In addition Penn is also requiring students to utilize a mobile device that tracks COVID-19 symptoms. Although, most classes will be online, Penn is taking every precaution to prevent the spread of the virus on campus.
