As members of the Harvard community, we have a collective responsibility to keep one another safe and healthy. All GSAS affiliates are expected to follow University and FAS guidance, including meeting the vaccine booster requirement, testing if necessary or required, and wearing FAS-approved masks, when required. Unless we work together to uphold these responsibilities, we put ourselves and one another at risk. Please note that repeated noncompliance with these expectations may lead to restriction of access to classrooms and buildings, notification to graduate program administration, or referral to the GSAS Administrative Board for disciplinary action.

Harvard has transitioned to optional COVID-19 testing. Read a Gazette Q&A with two of the University’s COVID advisors to learn more about the thinking behind this decision.

Students may continue to test if desired. Those who are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms or have a known exposure should continue to test: Symptomatic testing remains important while COVID continues to circulate in the community. If you are returning to campus and would like to test, email with your name and HUID so that you can be added to the testing eligibility file.
