The health and safety of everyone who comes to Rutgers is a shared responsibility. Following these community safety practices will help protect you and others.

Face Coverings/Masks

As of June 2022 and for the fall 2022 semester, face coverings continue to be required in all indoor teaching spaces, libraries, and clinical settings. Compliance is mandatory.

For faculty, staff, and students who have received an exemption from the university’s COVID-19 vaccination requirements, the use of face coverings is still required in all public spaces, including offices, research labs, housing, and conference rooms.

All members of the community should have a face covering in their possession at all times on campus.

Frequent Handwashing

Clean your hands after being in a public place, blowing your nose, coughing, sneezing, or touching the face.

  • Lather your hands with soap and water for at least twenty (20) seconds
  • If soap and water are not readily available, cover all surfaces of your hands with a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol and rub them together until they feel dry
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth at all times

On-Campus Protocols and Safety Tips

As our COVID-19 protocols continue to evolve, using common sense and doing your part in our shared responsibilities continues to be essential. This includes staying home while sick, whether for COVID-19 or not.
