Question: Is testing mandatory for students and campus employees?
Answer: Students, faculty and staff coming to campus who have been fully vaccinated (two weeks after your final dose of vaccine) are no longer required to test weekly. Students, faculty and staff living on campus or coming to campus who have not been fully vaccinated must continue weekly asymptomatic testing.
Symptomatic testing also remains available for students, faculty and staff. If you become symptomatic after vaccination, get tested. Our continued vigilance is important to the overall health of our campus community. Learn more about testing
