Surveillance Testing - Badge System

Testing Badge System on eTang Portal Home Page

 

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 appointments.

What is it for?

This tool in eTang that can help remind those who are doing either required or recommended regular COVID-19 surveillance testing. It tracks your testing appointments and will signal a color based on if you are current with the testing.

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

  • You’re considered fully vaccinated 14 days after your final vaccine dose. 
  • In order to be compliant with the campus requirements to have a green campus access badge, and for your testing badge to reflect these new requirements, you must have had at least one COVID test through a campus testing site, and outside vaccination must be documented in eTang. Once you come in for one surveillance test, UHS can change your testing badge status when you are fully vaccinated. 

If you enter outside vaccine information into eTang, it will update your badge status overnight based on the information you entered.  Please make sure to carefully enter the dates.

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"
