COVID-19 Vaccine Boosters Past Due
A reminder that all eligible students and employees were required to receive and submit documentation of the booster vaccine by January 31, 2022. If you have not yet done so, please upload your documentation to Workday by following these instructions for students and for employees. Contact [email protected] with any questions about your eligibility for the booster vaccine.
Masks are required in all indoor, public spaces. We strongly recommend wearing an N95, KN95s, surgical masks, or a combination of a cloth mask with a surgical mask. A cloth mask alone does not provide adequate protection against the Omicron variant. Whatever type of mask you use, the most important thing is to wear it consistently and properly—with a tight fit and covering both the mouth and the nose. The CDC provides additional information on mask selection.
Weekly On-Campus COVID-19 Testing
(for Exempt Individuals and Random Testing of Vaccinated Individuals)
Weekly COVID-19 testing takes place on Wednesdays from 8:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. in the Corcoran Room on the first floor of Gateway North. Any student, faculty, or staff coming to campus who has an approved exemption from the vaccine requirement or who is not yet fully vaccinated (and has notified Student Health Services or Human Resources) must participate in weekly COVID-19 testing. Stevens students and employees who are getting COVID-19 tests off-campus and submitting their required test results should submit them here. On-campus students, faculty, and staff who are vaccinated will be randomly selected to participate in weekly testing throughout the spring semester. Read more and register for a weekly test.
