Self-Administered Saliva Pooled Testing
For Upstate faculty, staff, and students that have previously participated in the pooled saliva testing, Upstate has implemented a Self-Administered testing process at Weiskotten and IHP.
**IMPORTANT: If you have not previously participated in the pooled saliva testing, you must first attend one of the staffed testing sessions where the testing team will walk you through the testing process. After that initial test, you will be able to participate in the self-administered testing process going forward.
