Post-Travel COVID Testing and Quarantine Policy

This page details post-travel testing and quarantine requirements for both vaccinated and unvaccinated community members with an on-campus presence who take a personal or business trip within the US or internationally.

This page is not intended for students who are entering campus for the first time, or re-entering after spending summer term away from campus. For students newly arriving back to campus, refer to the student arrival protocols page.

As vaccination rates continue to rise and Harvard community members resume travel, Harvard recognizes that conditions vary regionally and certain travel increases individuals’ risk of COVID-19. Because of that, the University has implemented policies for community members who travel and return to campus.

Harvard’s post-travel COVID testing and quarantine policy may change as the course of the pandemic changes. If you fall into more than one category below, you should follow the more restrictive guidance.

If you have questions about the post-travel COVID testing and quarantine policy, consult your local testing coordinator or HUHS.
