NAU To Increase COVID-19 Testing As In-Person Classes Begin Monday

Northern Arizona University will increase testing for COVID-19 as in-person classes start Monday. NAU President Rita Cheng released a statement Friday, saying the school has partnered with Arizona State University and the state Department of Health Services to test 25-hundred people each week using ASU’s saliva testing. Cheng had a message for students on the Mountain Campus saying “I once again make a heartfelt appeal to each of you to be mindful of your personal responsibility to adhere to the protocols and guidelines” in regard to personal safety. She advises students to keep a mask with them at all times, even when outside, so if they can’t physical distance they can “mask up.” NAU began the fall semester on line back on August 12th. As of Thursday, over 18-hundred people were testing on campus, with 33 positive results, seven of which were on campus.
