COVID Policies

Surveillance testing for faculty, staff, and postdocs will end March 24, at the end of winter quarter. Free rapid tests will continue to be provided.

Stanford strongly recommends wearing masks indoors, including in classrooms and instructional spaces, and outdoors in crowded settings. Individual instructors may require masks in their classrooms and will post expectations on Canvas. Masks continue to be required in healthcare facilities including Vaden Health Center.

Community members are encouraged to stay up to date on COVID immunizations, particularly the bivalent booster.
