University to terminate contract with Northshore Clinical Laboratories

The University terminated its contract with Northshore Clinical Laboratories due to our institution’s dissatisfaction with Northshore’s service in helping to conduct on-campus COVID-19 testing for our students, faculty and staff.

February 1, 2022

Dear Wolf Pack Family,

Today the University terminated its contract with Northshore Clinical Laboratories due to our institution’s dissatisfaction with Northshore’s service in helping to conduct on-campus COVID-19 testing for our students, faculty and staff. This action is effective immediately.

This announcement does not in any way change our focus, which is to provide timely on-campus COVID-19 testing for our campus community.

Our Student Health Center will continue to provide free daily COVID-19 testing for our students, faculty and staff, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. No appointment is necessary. You must have your NSHE ID or employee ID available and complete a registration form prior to testing. However, the Student Health Center will not be available for COVID-19 testing tomorrow, Feb. 2, as it prepares to assume testing operations. Testing will be available starting Thursday, Feb. 3.

We have also reached out to the State of Nevada for assistance. In addition, we are exploring other resources from the region’s health organizations as well as University resources to meet the on-campus testing needs of our students, faculty and staff.

I wish to thank the ongoing and tireless efforts that are being made by our entire Student Health Center in providing convenient on-campus COVID-19 testing. These are individuals whose dedication to the health and well-being of the people of our University has been simply remarkable during a challenging time. Please remember, as has been the case throughout the pandemic, to exercise patience and to demonstrate understanding for the Student Health Center staff.

Thank you for all you are doing in Protecting our Pack.

Sincere regards,

Brian Sandoval
President
