Required COVID-19 Testing
New for the Spring 2021 semester, Bristol will be requiring COVID-19 testing for all hybrid students prior to returning to campus for the first time and at regular intervals throughout the semester – either weekly or bi-weekly depending on the program.
All hybrid students will receive their COVID-19 testing at the college. The college has contracted with a new testing partner to allow for on-campus testing with results often available in less than 24 hours. This will help the college and students easily keep track of results.
Step 1: Get tested at the Bristol Hybrid Student testing site.
Bristolcc.edu/together/testing (Click on the date, then select time)
Remember to bring your Bristol Student ID card.
NEW Testing Location:
H building, The Margaret L. Jackson Arts Center
Enter from Parking Lot #11 or Door #1 only
The testing will let you know if you are asymptomatic and positive for COVID-19. Do not attend this testing if you have been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 or think you currently may have COVID-19. In this case, please contact your physician or Health Services and fill out the Exposure Form.
Please note anyone who is getting the vaccine or has tested positive in the past is still required to test. Contact Health Services if you have questions.
Step 2: Check with your instructor on your ongoing testing schedule.
Testing requirements will depend on the program that you are in and when you are returning to campus.
Sign up for testing at Bristolcc.edu/together/testing Check back for new dates being added.
Step 3: Daily Checklist
Prior to coming to campus check your COVID-19 Daily Checklist for Students. If you have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 fill out the confidential exposure form and someone from health services will get back to you with guidance.
Step 4: Always remember the three Ws
Wash your hands. Wear your mask. Watch your distance.

Safety is paramount, and with the pandemic, there are new college guidelines, as outlined in the Bristol Together Plan (found on the college website at www.bristolcc.edu/together/), developed in accordance with the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH). These are clear behavioral, health and safety requirements that protect individuals and the Bristol community.
