Campus Starts Sentinel Testing

Campus Starts Sentinel Testing

Sent on behalf of Anita L. Archie, Interim President

The Alabama Community College System and Trenholm State Community College are utilizing COVID-19 testing services through the UAB GuideSafeTM Platform, powered by UAB. As part of this effort, UAB will be randomly selecting community college students and employees to participate in COVID-19 testing each week.

To support a safe and healthy environment at Trenholm State Community College, we are implementing sentinel testing across our campuses. Sentinel testing is a random sampling of all asymptomatic faculty, staff and students to understand the underlying prevalence of infection at our college so we can respond promptly to any outbreaks or increases in infection rates. You are strongly encouraged but not required to participate in testing but there will be no penalty for those who choose to opt out.

Over the next few weeks you may receive an email from Healthy@Verily.com asking you to schedule an appointment for COVID-19 sentinel testing. Some of you may have already received this email. If you did not receive it or do not receive one over the semester that is OK. Log into your Verily account to complete pre-test symptom screen and schedule your COVID-19 sentinel test.

If you have tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 12 weeks, please do not retest at this time. If you are having symptoms or have a recent exposure, follow our college health and safety plan, and do not participate in sentinel testing; the health and safety plan can be found here https://www.trenholmstate.edu/college-information/trenholm-news/fall-reopening-plan/

Check your email for a very important message from Healthy@Verily.com to schedule your COVID-19 sentinel test.

If you are selected for testing and your dedicated instructional site is not the location of testing, you may request travel reimbursement

For any questions, please contact Dr. Pam Rollins, Director of Human Resources.
