Let's Take Care of Each Other
As we look forward to holiday travel and the end of the semester, keep your CMU community in mind with these simple guidelines:
Stay home if you’re sick
Get your flu shot and COVID-19 booster if eligible
Tartan Test before/after your travel
Wear your facial covering indoors
Be courteous in shared spaces
Tartan Testing is Carnegie Mellon's testing program for the diagnosis of COVID-19 in asymptomatic individuals and is an important element of the university's ongoing strategy to detect and prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our community.
Who Must Participate Weekly in Tartan Testing
- Students who are in progress with becoming fully vaccinated or those students who have been exempted from the COVID-19 vaccine requirement or facial covering requirement
- Faculty/staff who have not uploaded their vaccination information to the university’s Vaccine Database or who have been exempted from the COVID-19 vaccine requirement
In addition, the CDC recommends travelers get tested both before and after travel.
The test takes less than 15 minutes and same-day appointments are often available. Tartan Testing is also available for fully vaccinated CMU community members who desire a weekly test.

Taking the daily self-assessment is one way to show you care about your community.
