As of December 18, 2020, there have been 107 total positive cases
within the NJCU community since September 1, including 20
additional cases in the last week. Documentation of reported cases are update regularly and can be found on NJCU’s COVID-19 website dashboard
Additional Week Added for Surveillance Testing
NJCU is utilizing a targeted testing approach based on the risk of transmission of COVID-19 within the university community to identify those who may have COVID but are a-symptomatic. This method is known as surveillance testing.
We will offer one final opportunity for a surveillance test this semester with on-campus appointments available on Tuesday, December 22. There are eight time slots available from which to choose. Surveillance testing will be offered again beginning the week of January 4.

being the stricter of the two set of standards. Therefore, NJCU is following the guidance set force by the state. Click on each link in this section for additional information on the criteria.
