All River Campus and ESM undergraduates living in residence halls and coming from either a non-contiguous state or from a CDC Level 2 or 3 country will need to quarantine upon returning to campus in spring 2021.
The University is helping the on-campus community stay safe through testing, screening, surveillance, contact tracing, and quarantine/isolation measures. This program involves:
- A combination of symptom tracking of all students, faculty, and staff
- Initial testing of all students living on campus, using an established priority order based upon departure location/point of origin and of any symptomatic individuals
- Contact tracing of all positive cases
- Random COVID-19 testing among the student population
You can reference the University’s COVID-19 dashboard to see the latest data related to testing results and confirmed cases across all University of Rochester campuses.
All residential undergraduate students on River Campus and at the Eastman School of Music will be required to get COVID tested before leaving for the fall semester.
The University has issued updated guidance regarding travel for students, faculty, and staff (including URMC and other essential staff).
