Surveillance Testing - Badge System

Testing Badge System on eTang Portal Home Page

(Note this is different than the Campus Badge that was discontinued as of May 6)

What is it called?

On eTang, you'll notice it will say "Your Quarantine Status." Although it is called "Quarantine Status", it is a system for tracking COVID-19 testing requiments.

What is it for?

This tool in eTang tracks your testing requirements set by campus public health guidelines and will signal a color based on if you are current with the testing.

Please see campus surveillance testing requirements faculty, staff, and students.

  • For those who are fully vaccinated and boosted, regular surveillance testing is no longer required and the testing badge will be set to the color "blue" to reflect that no testing is required.  
  • For those that are not fully vaccinated, or booster eligible but not yet boosted, or who have an approved exemption are still required to do weekly surveillance testing and the testing badge will be "green" to reflect being current with the weekly testing requirement.  

Who do I contact if I have questions about my testing badge status?

Please send a message to the COVID Response Team via eTang for the quickest response to your question. If you’ve received a message from the COVID Response Team, you can reply directly to that message. We aim to respond to your message within 24 hours. 

Where do I find it?

When you log into eTang, your home page will now display the option to see a color-coded testing badge that indicates if you are up to date with your COVID-19 testing. Hit the "Show Badge"
