Post-Travel COVID Testing and Quarantine Policy

This page details post-travel testing and quarantine for community members with an on-campus presence who take a personal or business trip.

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, please refer to the student arrival protocols page.

As vaccination rates continue to improve and members of the community begin to restart domestic and international travel, Harvard remains cognizant that conditions vary regionally and certain travel increases individuals’ risk of COVID-19. Recognizing that, the University has implemented the below policies for members of the community who travel and return to campus.

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

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