Post-travel Restrictions Lifted May 17, 2021

As of May 17, 2021, New Jersey's travel advisory is no longer in effect. The Travel Risk Assessment Form should now only be completed by individuals returning from international travel who are not fully vaccinated.

You do not need to complete a Risk Assessment Form and are clear to return to campus without quarantine after travel if:

  • You are arriving to New Jersey after domestic travel, or:
  • You are arriving to New Jersey after international travel and you are fully vaccinated (your travel occurred at least 14 days after your final FDA Authorized or WHO Emergency Use Listed COVID vaccine dose).

You should still follow travel guidance from the NJ Department of Health and all University public health guidelines.

At this time, the CDC recommends delaying travel if possible until you are fully vaccinated. If you are not fully vaccinated, you should also be tested on arrival and 3-5 days after return. If you are part of the Asymptomatic Testing Program, please see Testing | Princeton COVID Resources for updated information on our campus testing program.
