We thank everyone for their ongoing vigilance to protect our campuses and community. The University continues to maintain a low COVID-19 infection rate, yet we are reminded that the pandemic is not over. Although protocols in the District have eased (businesses need not verify vaccination status, masks are no longer required in many places), our COVID-19 safety protocols remain unchanged:
Masks are always required indoors.
Weekly testing is required for exempt/high risk groups.
Vaccination and up-to-date boosters are required for everyone coming on campus.
We will verify vaccination status for the public coming on campus.
There is a 10-day isolation off campus/negative clearance test required for positive cases.
COVID-19 TESTS NO LONGER BEING ADMINISTERED
University Health Services will no longer administer rapid antigen COVID-19 tests at 4225 Connecticut Avenue NW. However, rapid self-test kits will be distributed by managers to staff this week. Tests are also available at University Health Services and Office of Student Success.
Students and staff are encouraged to test themselves if leaving the area for Spring Break. Please continue to practice safe behavior and follow CDC guidelines if you are travelling. Remember, self-testing is one of several strategies to reduce the chances of COVID-19 transmission. You may self-test regardless of vaccination or symptom status.
OFF-CAMPUS TESTING OPTIONS
There are many testing options available throughout the District of Columbia and the surrounding region:
For District residents, please check here for a list of self-test locations and testing centers.
For non-District residents, please check here for testing options in your area.
Mandatory weekly reporters must continue to submit negative results online, using the existing administrative portal currently in place with the option to upload negative results. Don’t forget to write your name and date on the test card and submit a photo of the result.
