Starting Monday, April 11, Emerson’s testing center at Tufts Medical Center will open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday instead of the previous 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

According to a Wednesday community-wide email from Assistant Vice President for Campus Life and “COVID Lead” Erik Müürisepp, if students have been testing between the hours of 4:30 p.m. and 6 p.m., they now should plan to test before then if their schedule permits.

Müürisepp wrote that if students are not able to test between the new hours, they should email COVID19@emerson.edu to discuss possible alternatives.
