Video: See what COVID testing will look like on the Green Bay Campus

Hi, I’m Jeremy Cleven, and today we’re going to walk through the testing process for those of you being tested on the Green Bay campus.

We’re outside the Kress Event Center right now, near the turf gym. This will be your entrance that you take to come in for the test.

Turf gym entrance

Once you make your testing appointment on the MyPrevea app, you will arrive to the Kress Center at your appointment time. You’ll enter at the first door of the turf gym, come on in wait in the socially distanced staging area, on the assigned spot.

From there you will be asked to proceed to one of the check-in stations. There you will show your ID, verify who you are, and provide us with your student ID number.

Once you appropriately check in you’ll be headed to the collection area. We have three collection areas. Just go to which one you’re called. The collection will involve you just verifying who you are and having a cotton tip swab inside your nostril. It doesn’t go very deep so it shouldn’t bother you too much.

Once your collection is taken you’ll be free to go. We will handle the testing on the back end and you should know your results through the MyPrevea app within a day.

Once we collect your sample you will follow the pathway to exit the building. It’s important to follow the path so we don’t have people running into each other and we can maintain socially distanced interactions. You will be required to leave the building through the door behind me, heading out towards the soccer stadium. You will not be able to re-enter the Kress Center unless you head around to the fitness center area.

This testing process is an important part of keeping you safe and keeping a healthy campus. Thank you for following instructions. Thank you for making the appointments.

Thank you for masking. Thank you for socially distancing.

This is meant to help you have a fun and safe experience while you’re on campus.
