Vanderbilt Testing Center to delay opening Jan. 17 due to winter weather

Due to snow accumulations today and the possibility of hazardous conditions tomorrow morning, the COVID-19 testing center at the David Williams II Recreation and Wellness Center will delay its opening to 10 a.m. tomorrow. The center plans to remain open until 5 p.m. assuming weather conditions do not worsen.

Any off-campus students, faculty, staff or postdocs planning to travel to campus for any reason are strongly encouraged to evaluate road conditions and use discretion in choosing whether to make the commute. Personal safety is the first priority.

As a reminder, KN95 masks will be available to members of the on-campus community to utilize during the first few weeks of the semester. Certain groups that are working in high-contact situations will receive masks directly, including those working with children and campus facilities. Students will either receive the masks at their campus residence or at their school’s dean’s or departmental office. Faculty, staff and postdoctoral fellows working in schools and units can access masks through their main offices.

Currently, there are no changes to dining operations for this evening and tomorrow and the Student Health Center will be open as scheduled.
