Sentinel Surveillance Testing for COVID-19

Robert Morris University has partnered with Curative, Inc., the UPMC MyHealth@School Center, and the Allegheny County Health Department to conduct COVID-19 testing among our students. Even though the number of students and employees infected with COVID-19 remains low, RMU will continue our efforts to ensure the campus community is safe, especially now during the colder months when we are mostly indoors.
