The Counselling and Wellness Center (CWC) has partnered with test provider LabStat to create a portal for students to check COVID-19 test results. In the coming semesters, the hope is that the portal will make it easier to keep track of COVID tests as students depart for the holidays and return to campus in January.
The portal allows students to check the status of their COVID-19 test through the creation of a LabStat account, which is finalized in a link sent to whichever email was given during the COVID testing process. In the “Patient Table” page, test results are visible in PDF format.
The decision to create a testing portal seems to be a precaution against rising COVID-19 cases in the Sarasota area. The New College Division of Finance & Administration announced on Nov. 19 that there has been an ongoing effort to increase testing opportunities provided via Lab Services.
With December coming soon it seems like the portal will see greater use. Students returning to campus after Thanksgiving break will be required to test on Dec. 2–3 or leave campus by Dec. 6.
