Daily COVID-19 Screener
Members of the NYU community will be required to regularly complete a brief questionnaire, called the Daily COVID-19 Screener for Campus Access, via NYU’s smartphone app or an accessible computer to be authorized to enter NYU facilities.
Proof of COVID-19 Vaccination
All employees accessing NYU buildings in the summer and fall who have been vaccinated against COVID-19 are required to upload proof of vaccination, which will exempt them from testing and contact quarantining.
All NYUers must wear face coverings when on NYU property or in NYU facilities, and are encouraged to wear them at all times when outside of home. While you should use your own face coverings, NYU also has PPE supplies you can access if needed.

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.
