- Indicated testing: individuals who have symptoms of COVID-19 or have been in close contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19,
- Required, ongoing testing: Required, ongoing testing: those who are not fully vaccinated (e.g. someone with a medical exemption),
- Discretionary testing: available to any NYU student, faculty, or staff member who wishes to be tested up to once a week but especially intended for those who may have been in a higher-risk situation (e.g. was in a crowd where mask wearing was spotty, following travel, etc.), and

We recognize that COVID-19's effects have been disparate, and its impacts on poor communities and communities of color have been especially painful. In our response to the coronavius, NYU is committed to mitigating those impacts as well as ensuring no one in our community is ostracized, bullied, or mistreated due to ignorance about this disease.
