New York campus data excluding the School of Medicine.
Data is posted below on a weekly basis.

For fall 2021, NYU has put in place a robust program of testing involving:

  1. Indicated testing: individuals who have symptoms of COVID-19 or have been in close contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19,
  2. Required, ongoing testing: Required, ongoing testing: those who are not fully vaccinated (e.g. someone with a medical exemption),
  3. 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
  4. Randomized testing of NYU community members.

This testing is used to assess COVID-19 incidence within the NYU community.

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.

If any member of our community believes they have experienced harassment or discrimination, we encourage them to report concerns to the Bias Response Line.
