As we resume in-person events, Harvard University is committed to providing a safe environment for all. Supporting our community’s well-being while advancing Harvard’s academic enterprise requires our collective participation in the University’s health and safety measures. We’ve created this page to highlight the most important COVID-19 safety requirements. Guests are required to follow all applicable health and safety requirements imposed by federal, state, and local authorities, as well as Harvard University policies, to reduce the risk and spread of COVID-19. Requirements may change as the public health situation evolves. Things may look different as we get closer to the event. We will adapt these policies as needed based on public health guidance; please check this page as the event date gets closer.
Expectations for Attending Harvard-Sponsored Events and Gatherings
Guests are required to follow all applicable health and safety requirements imposed by federal, state, and local authorities, as well as Harvard University policies, to reduce the risk and spread of COVID-19.
- We encourage you to test before coming to campus or before attending a Harvard-sponsored event, even if you are not experiencing symptoms. Rapid antigen tests are widely available at area pharmacies.
- If you have symptoms, no matter how mild, we ask that you do not attend the event—even if you test negative.
- If you test positive, please do not travel to campus or attend any events. For more information, visit the Keep Harvard Healthy website.
- For indoor and crowded outdoor events, we encourage wearing a high-quality mask that fits securely without air gaps around your nose and mouth. Please be prepared that some indoor events may require masking.
We are delighted you are joining us. Thank you for adhering to Harvard University COVID-19 safety protocols. We can all play a role in preventing the spread of infection. We’re healthier together.
