I have to be away from the Madison area for an extended period of time, preventing me from testing. What should I do?

If you will not be in the Madison area for a week or more, you may request an exemption for that week.

Students who are not able to be on the UW–Madison campus must complete the Student Testing Temporary Exemption form. Faculty and staff who plan on traveling away from Madison must complete the Faculty and Staff Temporary Testing Exemption form.

This exemption will temporarily excuse you from any sanctions associated with non-compliance with the testing policy during this time. When you return to Madison, you must complete a COVID-19 test within 24 hours.

Requests are only valid for future dates. Submissions for tests missed in the past will not be approved.
