Johns Hopkins has guidelines in place designed to allow us to conduct activities with the health and safety of our community at the forefront of our thinking.

Current Status

As of May 24

At this time: 

  • Johns Hopkins University has simplified its COVID-19 vaccination policy. All incoming students and employees must have received at least one dose of any FDA- or WHO-authorized vaccine. This does not impact current affiliates who have been vaccinated or have received an appropriate exemption. More information
  • Masking is optional in all campus, classroom, and work-related spaces; individuals may choose to continue masking. Faculty can request that students wear masks while in their classroom. More information
  • The university is no longer offering symptomatic testing. Students, staff, faculty, and trainees are encouraged to test themselves when they are symptomatic or concerned about exposure to COVID-19. All affiliates are required to stay at home while they are sick or experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms. More information
