Provost Mary C. Boyce and University COVID Director Donna Lynne write with an update on the university's campus COVID-19 status as we approach the end of September that includes an extension of the current face covering mandate.
At this time, Columbia University is not requiring booster dosing, but here are details on those who are eligible and where doses are available.
Detailed information for faculty about the Contact Tracing Process at Columbia and guidance on how to respond to students who disclose a positive COVID-19 test, who indicate the need to isolate or quarantine, or who share that they are experiencing symptoms that may suggest COVID.
It remains critically important that all public health guidelines continue to be followed. Outdoor seating around campus will continue to be available as will 'grab and go' options for all students on meal plans.
This session will include up-to-date information regarding COVID-19 and the fall 2021 term, including a discussion of COVID-19 booster shots and flu shots.
Attendance caps on indoor gatherings will be lifted, except with indoor sporting events, and the indoor mask requirement and daily symptom. attestation remain in place.
