We’re Healthier Together
Guided by our commitment to education and research and to the health and safety of our community, Harvard continues to emphasize remote learning and work while allowing for the resumption of certain in-person activities, including the return of a limited population of students to campus.
Supporting the wellbeing of community members while advancing Harvard’s academic enterprise requires each of us to take steps to protect ourselves and others—whether by continuing to study or work remotely, or by following important health and safety protocols on campus.
Through robust commitment at the University, School, and individual level, all of us can play a role in preventing the spread of infection and can help keep Harvard healthy.
Verify Your Vaccination
Harvard is requiring COVID vaccination for all community members who will have any on-campus presences this fall, including students, faculty, staff, and researchers. For faculty, staff, and researchers, we advise vaccination as soon as possible, and verification of vaccination must be submitted to Harvard University Health Services (HUHS) by July 15.
Before Returning to Campus
We have an individual and collective responsibility to keep ourselves and our community members safe. All community members are expected to adhere to University policies and public health directives.
Through regular viral testing, we can ensure that the safety protocols we’ve established are meeting their intended goals.
HUHS will use contact tracing to identify infected individuals as early as possible and to isolate them from the broader community.
Quarantine & Isolation
Harvard has developed procedures to reduce the risk of outbreaks on campus and to provide the necessary support for individuals who need to quarantine or isolate.
