Details on the COVID-19 testing and quarantine requirements that many students will need to fulfill before they can begin their in-person spring semester.
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.
University Health Service (UHS) is again making post-protest testing available to full-time asymptomatic University students who request it.
Everyone who has already received the COVID vaccine must remain committed and accountable to the semester’s pandemic protocols that mitigate COVID infection and transmission.
COVID-19 cases continue to grow rapidly among our undergraduate student population. The UHS Director details steps you can take to help prevent a "pause".
