Testing and Tracing
UW-Stout has made critical changes to campus operations to mitigate the risk and spread of COVID-19. We are also implementing rigorous testing and tracing measures to better identify and track COVID on campus.
All residence hall students will test weekly throughout the Spring 2021 semester. Students will be organized into daily testing cohorts to more effectively manage traffic and testing operations.
Instructions and links for scheduling a testing time and completing a pre-screening questionnaire will be sent by University Housing to residence hall students. Please check your Stout email regularly for any updates or additional information.

If individuals test positive, contact tracers will work with the student to identify and connect with individuals who may be considered a close contact. It is important to answer calls from the contact tracers. No personal data will be shared with anyone other than Public Health or their designees.
Isolation or Quarantine Requirements
Pending a student’s symptoms and the immediate results of their antigen test, they may be asked to take an additional PCR test. These results can take between 72-84 hours to return to the student. The type of test and the results will determine if someone needs to be in isolation or quarantine, as well as the length of time that they should do so. This is a general guide for when a student is asked to take a PCR test:
