COVID Dashboard

The University's COVID-19 dashboard provides daily reports on employees (faculty and staff) whose final vaccination doses have been verified, and weekly updates of positive cases reported by University Health Services from asymptomatic and symptomatic testing as well as isolation and quarantine reports. Daily reports are typically updated by 10 a.m., weekly reports by 5 p.m. on Monday or, after a Monday holiday, on Tuesday.

For an explanation of risk status, visit the Campus Risk Status page.

Are You Back on Campus?

All Princeton University faculty, staff, students and affiliates returning to the campus are required to participate in the COVID-19 Asymptomatic Testing Program. To learn more about the testing process, read through the “Taking the Test” webpage.

Those who are fully vaccinated are required to test once weekly; those who have been exempted from vaccination are required to test twice weekly. For more information about eligibility and frequency, read the eligibility and frequency guidelines, and check the guidelines for when and where to drop off your testing sample.

As of August 2, all employees, matriculating students, researchers and affiliates will be able to access the web application used to register a test kit and start participating in the testing program. Employees should still notify their department manager to make sure they are correctly captured on a departmental resumption plan, even if they are able to take part in the testing process.

For undergraduates with additional questions about arriving to campus, including more details about move-in, please visit the Undergraduate FAQs page.

You can come to begin testing before your first day of work if you are newly returning to campus. You do not need to have a negative test result before resuming on-campus work. 

For more information on the testing program, email covidtests@princeton.edu
