Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Updated March 24, 2021

The University's COVID website is regularly updated with public health guidance and expectations for the University community, including undergraduate students (on- and off-campus), graduate students, and employees (faculty, staff, researchers).

Refer to the Spring 2021 website for information regarding University's academic and operational plans for the Spring 2021 semester.

UHS will continue to update information regarding testing, and appropriate contacts for health-related questions. Please bookmark this page so you can check back frequently.

If you are experiencing symptoms:

If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention and please call in advance. If you are experiencing a medical emergency, please call 9-1-1. 

  • Undergraduate and graduate students  – call University Health Services at 609-258-3141. If you are tested for COVID-19 anywhere other than UHS, you must notify UHS by emailing communityhealth@princeton.edu so UHS may begin contact tracing. 
  • Employees – contact your primary care provider or local urgent care center. If you are tested for COVID-19, you must notify UHS by emailing communityhealth@princeton.edu so UHS can begin contact tracing. 

COVID Risk Assessment post-travel 

If you do plan to travel and will be returning to campus, please note:

  • You must complete the COVID Risk Assessment Form 3-7 business days prior to returning to campus to allow the Global and Community Health Team at UHS to advise whether a 10-day quarantine is required by the University upon return, depending on current State of New Jersey regulations.
  • You cannot reduce the length of quarantine by receiving a negative COVID test result. As it can take several days from exposure to test positive or experience symptoms, negative tests are not sufficient to end self-quarantine early. 

See the NJ self-quarantine for travelers FAQ for more information.
