Surveillance Testing

Weekly Surveillance Testing

Updated Jan. 13, 2021

In an effort to create and maintain a safe campus environment, LC State is engaging in a comprehensive weekly surveillance testing program. Test kits (Vault testing kits) supplied by the State of Idaho Department of Health and Welfare will be available to students and employees (at no cost to them) at various campus locations. These quick and easy saliva tests can be self-administered. Test results are reported to the individual and Idaho Public Health.

Students may pick up their kits as they engage in routine campus business (e.g., checking into a residence hall or finalizing something with Registrar/Records). Employees will be able to pick them up at Human Resource Services or at the DeArmond Building in Coeur d’Alene. Test kits will be available on Mondays and Tuesdays and must be returned by noon on Wednesdays. Testing kits can be picked up and returned at the following locations:

  • Athletics (ACC 168)
  • Residence Life (Talkington Hall, main office)
  • Human Resource Services (for employees, Admin 102)
  • Schweitzer Career and Technical Education Center (main desk)
  • Warrior OneStop (RCH 108)
  • DeArmond Building (CDA students and employees)
  • Student Success Program lab (RCH 22A)
  • SUB/CSL (information desk)
  • Adult Basic Education/GED (front desk)
  • Workforce Training (North Lewiston facility)

Accommodations will be made to permit people to self-administer the tests when they pick them up or they may take them to self-administer later that day. Access to internet and Zoom will be needed to self-administer the tests. Once people have completed their tests, they are to return the sealed UPS package to the location at which they picked up their kits.
