Screening Program for Faculty, Staff, and Graduate and Professional Students

Updated January 15, 2021

Asymptomatic Testing

Yale is offering asymptomatic testing up to twice weekly to all faculty, staff, and graduate and professional students. Use the “Schedule a Test” link to make an appointment. Residents of Harkness Hall and Helen Hadley Hall and high contact faculty and staff have special scheduling instructions.

Screening is available at the Lanman Center (72 Lake Place), 150 York Street, or 60 Sachem Street.

Symptomatic Testing

Symptomatic testing is available 6 days a week through the Campus COVID Resource Line (CCRL) at 203-432-6604. All Yale students, staff, and faculty are eligible regardless of insurance. In most cases, same-day testing is possible. Yale Health Acute Care (203-432-0123) is available 24-7 if needed.

Family Members

  • Family members or dependents who live in residential colleges are eligible to be tested through the screening program.
  • Family members or dependents who do not live in residential colleges and who are insured through Yale Health may request testing through the Campus COVID Resource Line at (203) 432-6604. You may directly schedule an appointment for your Yale Health dependents who are asymptomatic (no symptoms).
  • Yale family members, partners, children or unrelated housemates who are not members of Yale Health can access testing sites in New Haven and throughout Connecticut, or they may contact their healthcare provider.

If You Test Positive

In order to protect the community, if your test is positive you will be asked not to come to campus. You will receive a call from Yale Health to explain your results, and you should seek care with your primary care clinician as needed. Your supervisor or, for graduate and professional students, your Health and Safety Leader will be notified, to provide support and address any safety issues in your workplace if you have been reporting to work. The Yale Contact Tracing Team will contact you to perform contact tracing.
