Students, employees and affiliates are no longer required to submit asymptomatic test samples, but are asked to voluntarily test monthly to help the University monitor variants circulating on campus. To support our monitoring program, please follow the monthly testing schedule:


Visitor Policy: 

  • No casual visitors are allowed inside the SoA.
  • The only permitted visitors will be sponsored by or invited by the SoA, and must be fully vaccinated.

All visitors must be invited or sponsored and comply with the requirements of this policy prior to entering campus buildings. Visitors must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19; however, depending on the category of the visit detailed in Section IV of this policy, individuals who are not fully vaccinated may be permitted for short-term visits of no more than five days with no overnight stays on campus if they meet the requirements of section IV.b below (including showing proof of a negative COVID-19 test OR wearing a face covering at all times inside campus buildings). The categories of visitors described in section IV.a below must be fully vaccinated with no exceptions. Regardless of vaccination status, all visitors must comply with the requirements of face coverings in effect at the time of their visit to campus.



Stay home if you are sick.
