COVID 19 - Testing
The AU Transportation office will provide tranportation to testing sites in Niles and St. Joseph area pharmacies and clinics. We do not provide transportation to South Bend pharmacies and clinics. Transportation request can be arranged by completing the Student Medical Request at least 24 hours before the schedule appointment time. Testing sites can be found by clicking on the link below.
As there is still a significant level of infection, hospitalization and community spread of COVID-19 in Berrien County, where our main campus is located, our masking guidelines indoors will remain in place through at January 31, 2022.
As a reminder, for those who have not been vaccinated, a monthly negative COVID-19 test is required for involvement in on-campus, in-person activities before the end of each month. The University will also randomly screen for COVID-19 test results to confirm compliance with this guideline.You can find information on local COVID-19 testing options here.
Andrews University Travel Advisory
The highest priority of the Andrews University administration is to help ensure and protect the health and safety of students and employees.
During this COVID-19 pandemic, this priority continues to come into sharp focus. As a result, we will continue to create COVID-19 protocols that are informed by the ongoing and changing guidelines from the CDC and state and local public health departments.
Given that context, vaccinated and acquired immunity students and employees are permitted to participate in University-sponsored travel. For example, such persons may engage in approved academic-related travel, such as field trips, class trips, and study tours. They are expected to follow established COVID-19 protocols, such as wearing masks.
Unvaccinated employees shall not engage in University-sponsored travel. Day travel by unvaccinated employees for essential work may be approved in exceptional cases through the relevant administrative office.
Unvaccinated students shall not participate in any academic-related overnight field trips or study tours. However, students who are unvaccinated may participate in approved academic day trips such as field trips or class trips if the trips are for the complete and current class in which the students are enrolled.
Andrews University continues to respect and support the decision of students and employees to not take the vaccine because of medical reasons or their religious convictions. Students and University employees may email the Office of the Provost at email@example.com to request exemption from taking the vaccine, if necessary.
However, please note that an exemption from taking the vaccine does not mean that permission is granted to travel.
Revised: Oct. 6, 2021
