What You Need to Know

The University will rely upon the same COVID-19 protocols in the spring semester as it did in the fall. Now is not the time to let your guard down: it will be months before there will be a large enough vaccine supply to serve the general public. You should continue to wear a mask, and practice physical distancing of six feet when in public, on campus and off.

Frequently Asked Questions

Fordham strongly recommends that all members of the University community add the COVID Alert NY contact tracing app to their smartphones.

COVID Alert NY is a voluntary, anonymous, exposure-notification smartphone app. You will get an alert if you were in close contact with someone who tests positive for COVID-19. The app keeps personal information confidential and does not track your movements.
