Dear Northeastern Community,

Throughout the pandemic, Northeastern’s health and safety protocols have been guided by the best available science, including expertise from our own faculty, and informed by the latest public health guidance. We have continually adapted our protocols as needed, keeping the holistic health and wellness of our community at the forefront of our decision making.

Northeastern is a fully vaccinated community with a booster requirement. Given the effectiveness of the vaccines, and the significant reduction in cases across North America, we are pleased to announce the lifting of restrictions across all of our North American campuses.

At present, Northeastern will maintain the requirements for masking indoors and weekly asymptomatic testing at our U.S. campuses. These measures are currently being evaluated and will be revisited as the semester progresses.

As we have done throughout the pandemic, we will continue to monitor developments and be prepared to pivot as needed to protect our community. We thank you for your continued understanding and flexibility as we navigate the shifting landscape of COVID-19. If you have questions, please refer to comprehensive online resources here or submit questions to
