Spring 2021 Pre-return Testing

Penn College has partnered with ADL Health to conduct pre-return testing to ensure the safety of the campus community. As outlined in campus-wide communication, all students and employees are encouraged to request their test kit from ADL Health as soon as possible. Kits should only be used in accordance with the appropriate return date timeline. It is crucial that individuals strictly adhere to all testing timelines outlined in the communication. Reminder emails will be sent as testing deadlines approach. If you haven't done so yet, request your kit ASAP.

Test Kit Tips

ADL has received approximately 100 test that cannot be processed until they are activated. Make sure you precisely follow the simple four-step instructions included with your test kit.

Video tutorial

STEP ONE

Confirm your name, date of collection and certify that you will mail your kit back that same day.

STEP TWO

Enter/verify Test number and UPS label number associated with your kit. Your test number is located on the collection tube and usually begins with a letter and then 8 digits*. Your UPS label number is on the return mailing envelope in your test kit.

Write your name and date of birth on the collection tube when prompted.

* If you have already sent back your kit without activating it and the specimen ID does NOT pre-populate, enter '12345.' ADL Health will match the sample to the activation using other criteria.

STEP THREE

Collect your sample and be sure to follow ADL Health's instructions and video tutorial. Follow all instructions closely to ensure a successful sample is collected and able to be processed.

STEP FOUR

Complete all acknowledgement statements, enter your full name, and then "I agree and have completed the activation process."

Send via UPS

Drop off you completed kit at a staffed UPS Store, UPS Customer Center, or UPS Retail Chain location or other UPS Authorized Service Provider before your selected location's latest pick-up time. Request a receipt.

Find the drop-off location nearest you.

UPS ≠ USPS

Do not return your completed test kit via the U.S. Postal Service. UPS is not the same as USPS.

Pre-return Testing Status

Individuals testing positive are instructed NOT to return to campus. While information presented shows positive cases for students and employees, none of those individuals are currently on campus, or have been to campus.
