Monday Auburn University announced its sentinel testing program has launched.

The target of the program is to test 2.5 percent of eligible students and employees who are asymptomatic every week — around 800-1,000 people a week.

University officials said doing so will help them monitor the infection rate on campus.

The test will be self administered for those who take part in the program.
