Upload your Vaccination and Booster Documentation
To protect the health and safety of the university community, Rutgers is requiring all university employees to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, regardless of your unit at Rutgers or whether you work remotely. As of May 16, 2023, booster doses will no longer be required unless an individual falls within the definition of a “Covered Individual” set forth in University Policy 100.3.1.
Employees must upload vaccination and booster (if required) documentation to the faculty/staff COVID-19 Vaccination portal. A NetID and password are required.
Any employee seeking a medical or religious exemption for the required COVID-19 vaccination, regardless of covered individual status, may access exemption request information under University Policy 100.3.1. Those who have received an exemption from vaccination are also excused from the booster requirement.
Please review information about COVID-19 testing for employees on the Rutgers Testing Program webpage.
Quarantining and Isolation
The Centers for Disease Control offers an interactive Quarantine and Isolation Calculator that provides valuable information and guidance for individuals with COVID-19 and for those who have had close contact with an infected person. The CDC tool provides guidance on face coverings, testing, and isolation. All employees and students with COVID-19 or who have had close contact with a person with COVID-19 should follow the recommendations provided by the Quarantine and Isolation Calculator.
Employees who test positive for COVID-19 (via PCR or antigen test), regardless of whether they have symptoms, should follow the advice provided from the CDC calculator, and follow up with their personal physician/urgent care. Contact OneSource for additional leave guidance.
Updated guidance on recommended use of face coverings and masks can be found on the Health and Safety webpage.
Rutgers University Family Support Line
The confidential staff, faculty, and family support line: Rutgers4U (1-855-652-6819) offers emotional and therapeutic support during and following the COVID-19 pandemic.
Future of Work
The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly changed the nature of work across every sector of the American workforce, including higher education. Beginning on September 1, 2022 through August 31, 2023, Rutgers will launch the FlexWork@RU Pilot Program to expand the current flexible work arrangement offerings available to employees and roll out a new caregiver support program.
