Because of a recent uptick in the number of COVID-19 cases in New York City, the COVID alert level has moved from low to moderate risk. Columbia's monitoring plan has been adjusted to be consistent with the city.
Columbia will require all students, beginning with the Fall 2022 term, to be up-to-date with their COVID-19 vaccinations. This means at minimum to have received the primary vaccination series and the first booster dose.
