Surveillance Testing - Badge System

New Color-Coded 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 is a new 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.

Any student, faculty, or staff can see their current status and it is a useful and important tool for those who are on-campus, either living, studying or working.

  • For those that have a testing requirement (based on-campus living situation or program requirement) and the badge is yellow, it means that the testing requirement is not current and testing needs to done.
  • For those who are currently not living, working, or studying on campus the badge may be yellow showing you are not current with testing, but since it is not a requirement, no action is needed.  

Where do I find it?

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