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

Current Status

As of September 5

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 no longer offers 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
