Reminder of Fall Safety Requirements


*Published on September 2, 2021*

Dear Students, Faculty, and Staff,

A fully in-person fall term is about to start with all campus activities resuming. It continues to be our foremost priority to maintain a safe campus environment for learning, teaching, research, work, and recreational activities.

All U.S.-based and Toronto Northeastern faculty, staff and students are required to be vaccinated. This remains the single best way to combat the coronavirus. In addition, the university will resume once-a-week testing next week. Please read the information below:

  • Testing Requirements on U.S. Campuses: Starting on the week of September 6, faculty, staff, students, and vendor employees—both fully vaccinated and unvaccinated—will be required to test once a week if they are on campus one day a week or more. This testing cadence applies on any U.S.-based Northeastern. Everyone is welcome to begin their testing cadence during the week of September 6 or before for students moving into residence halls on the Boston campus. Boston-based faculty, staff, and students should use the COVID-19 Test Scheduler to schedule their tests.
  • Daily Wellness Check: Starting the week of September 6, everyone—fully vaccinated and unvaccinated—should resume completing the Daily Wellness Check any day they are on campus.
  • Submit Proof of Vaccination: Northeastern faculty, staff, and students are required to submit verification of vaccination— no later than September 7th for the Toronto community and no later than September 8th for U.S.-based faculty and staff.
  • Vaccine Clinics on the Boston Campus: Northeastern will host vaccination clinics on its Boston campus on Friday, September 3 and Thursday, September 9—open to anyone who still needs to be vaccinated. Visit our partner website to schedule an appointment.

You can find the Test Scheduler, the Daily Wellness Check, the Vaccine Verification Form, test results, and other resources on the Wellness Portal, or by downloading the app.
