Please stay up to date on Stevens’ operations and guidance regarding the COVID-19 pandemic by regularly visiting our website. It is important for all members of our community to remain vigilant against COVID-19, particularly as restrictions are being lifted across the country. 

Vaccine Requirement 

Students, full-time and part-time employees must submit evidence of COVID-19 vaccination by August 1 (employees) and August16 (students). Student instructions and employee instructions on how to submit your documents are available online. Stevens will keep individuals’ vaccination information confidential.

See the FAQs for more information on this requirement. Please submit your documentation as soon as you have completed all doses of the vaccine. 

Face Mask Protocols

A reminder that masks and social distancing requirements will remain in effect for on-campus classes through the summer 2021 terms, regardless of vaccination status. We strongly urge all unvaccinated individuals to continue wearing a mask in public. Stevens supports those who choose to wear masks in all circumstances and will not permit retaliation of any kind against those exercising that choice.

Update on Positive COVID-19 Cases

Since the last email on July 6, one student who has not recently been on campus has tested positive for COVID-19.

We have received 23 test results from on-campus testing conducted from July 5 - 9 through Bergen New Bridge Medical Center and none were positive.

Weekly COVID Testing - Summer Schedule

Weekly COVID-19 testing during the summer months takes place on Wednesdays from 9 a.m --2 p.m. in Walker Gym. Any student, faculty, or staff coming to campus regularly who are not yet fully vaccinated must continue to participate in weekly COVID-19 testing. To qualify for a release from testing, fully vaccinated students, faculty, and staff must provide a record of COVID-19 vaccination to Stevens via Workday and wait two weeks after their final dose before stopping their weekly testing. 

Please register for your weekly test and schedule your appointment in advance. If you are experiencing difficulty in accessing your test results through the portal, please contact [email protected] for support.

Individuals who cannot come to campus on Wednesdays must arrange for their own weekly testing off campus and submit a negative test result online at https://mystevens.edu/covidtest before coming to campus.

Employees Returning to Work On Campus

Fully vaccinated faculty and staff who would like to begin transitioning back to their offices can do so at any time. Before coming to campus on any given day, fully vaccinated employees should complete the daily health check with the CampusClear app, as required by Gov. Murphy’s Executive Order 192, which is still in effect.

Unvaccinated faculty and staff who have been granted a medical or religious exemption and are planning to come to campus must first participate in the weekly COVID-19 testing held on Wednesdays or arrange for their own weekly testing off campus and submit a negative test result online at [email protected] (see section above on Weekly COVID Testing).

Employees experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 should stay home and get tested, regardless of their vaccination or exemption status.

Reporting COVID-19 Symptoms and/or Positive COVID-19 Results

If any student, faculty, or staff member (living on campus or off campus) experiences COVID-19 symptoms, tests positive for COVID-19, or has close contact with an individual who tests positive for COVID-19, please self-isolate and immediately contact Stevens Student Health Services at 201-216-5678 or [email protected]. This protects you and those with whom you have been in close contact.
