Harvard has implemented a multi-pronged approach for our faculty, staff, and researchers to safely resume their on-campus activities in Fall 2021. Our collective commitment to the required health and safety protocols will enable a safer return to campus for the entire community and reduce the risk and spread of COVID-19.
For staff, faculty, and researchers who have not been on campus since March 2020, the checklist below will help you prepare for your return. It includes everything from Harvard’s public health requirements like testing cadences and masking, to logistical support with commuting and connecting new devices to secure Wifi.
The list of FAQs below the checklist covers common concerns about testing, test results, privacy, masking, physical distancing, Color, and Crimson Clear.
In addition to the University-wide policies, each School, Unit, and department may have their own specific guidance for on-campus activities based on their unique needs. For local guidance and specific questions, contact your supervisor, local testing coordinator, or HR staff in your unit.
