University of California offers free COVID test kits for students

New York – According to a ZDnet report University of California in San Diego has installed COVID-19 testing kits across its campus from where new students can pick up the kits for free. UC San Diego officials have decided to offer COVID-19 tests — used to determine if an individual is carrying the virus, whether or not they have symptoms — as part of the organisation’s “Return to Learn” programme. Samples should be returned within 72 hours for processing. Students and staff returning to the campus are being asked to participate in daily symptom screenings and weekly COVID-19 tests. The testing procedure appears to be focused on making the process as easy and streamlined as possible — while also improving the chance of discovering both symptomatic and asymptomatic infection before an outbreak occurs. The university has also provided a dashboard for tracking students and campus employees COVID-19 infection rates. Approximately 10,000 students live on campus during standard semesters, while thousands more live off-campus, the report said.
