Multiple sources of information guide NYU's health and safety planning in response to the COVID-19 Pandemic, both community-based and campus-specific.

Please note: New York campus data excludes the School of Medicine.


As the pandemic continues to evolve, public health experts have reassessed the value of case counts and test positivity in informing COVID-19 policy decisions.  With NYU’s very high rates of COVID-19 vaccination and booster compliance, the numbers of hospitalization and deaths in New York City are more meaningful metrics.  Additionally, with the substantial increase in home testing, test positivity is now a less reliable metric of community transmission. Since the City of New York has suspended its color coded COVID-19 alert system, NYU has removed these data updates on this website for the summer.  Testing data from the previous academic year can be found below.


Vaccination Policy Compliance

In spring 2021, NYU announced that all members of the University community were required to be vaccinated against COVID-19 with an FDA-authorized or WHO-listed vaccine prior to the start of fall 2021 classes.  In December 2021, the University added a requirement that all students, faculty, administrators, and staff receive a booster vaccination and upload proof of having received it by January 18, 2022 or within seven days after becoming eligible.

To be in compliance with NYU’s requirements, all students, faculty, and employees must be up-to-date with their COVID-19 vaccinations and have their uploaded proof of vaccination approved, or have received an approved medical or religious exemption in order to be considered compliant. Those not yet eligible to receive a booster because not enough time has elapsed since their original vaccination are also considered compliant; when they become eligible, they have seven days to receive their booster and upload proof in order to remain compliant.

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 coronavirus, 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.
