Signing the NVU Pledge is required for all students, staff, and faculty

Testing Results and the Testing Process Moving Forward

As of October 20, 3,849 tests have been taken with 1 positive result. The tests were conducted through the Broad Institute testing program.

Through the remainder of the semester, testing will continue bi-weekly with a random selection of faculty, staff, and students. Those identified will receive email instructions about where and when. Please send questions related to testing to Jonathan Davis.

Daily Symptom Screening for Students, Faculty, and Staff

It is mandatory for all students, faculty, and staff who are on an NVU campus to do a daily symptom screening. Students, faculty, and staff will self-attest on days that they will be on campus. Students will complete this form 7 days a week. Log your symptoms daily here >

#MaskUpNVU—We All Have a Part to Play

Masks are required on our campuses. 

  • Wear masks everywhere inside unless you are alone in your residence hall room or office. 
  • Wear masks outside, even while walking on the campus pathways and trails or hanging out with friends. While they are not required outside when maintaining a 6-foot distance, it can be very challenging to ensure this physical distance. Please keep your masks on.
  • Follow these guidelines for how to wear a mask: the mask must cover the nose and chin and fit without gaps.
  • Learn more about how to wear a mask.
