COVID-19 Asymptomatic Testing

COVID-19 Asymptomatic Testing Requirements

Academic Appointees, Staff, and Students: NOT Fully Boosted - Not Up to Date

  • Academic appointees, staff, and students

    • One COVID-19 test per week




The COVID-19 testing program will remain cost-free to UC Merced students and employees through rapid, antigen testing.

  • Employees and students who utilize rapid antigen testing to comply with asymptomatic testing requirements can complete a weekly Self Attestation to remain compliant with the program.
  • Employees who are not Fully Vaccinated may choose to utilize a certified testing laboratory at their own expense, and are required to upload COVID-19 test results to UC Merced’s occupational health portal (Work Health Solutions) to be compliant with the Asymptomatic Screening Program.
