COVID-19 Testing Data

Fordham University COVID-19 Dashboard

The University is not conducting broad surveillance testing for COVID-19. The table reflects known cases among the campus population, whether the tests were conducted on campus or through an employee's healthcare provider.

  • All students and employees with vaccine exemptions or who are not yet up to date with their vaccines will be tested weekly on campus.
  • Symptomatic students, and students who are in close contact with a COVID-positive individual, can be tested on campus.
  • Faculty and staff who are symptomatic should stay home and get tested by their healthcare provider as soon as possible. 
  • Faculty and staff who believe they were exposed to someone with COVID-19 can continue their normal activities while wearing a mask so long as they are experiencing no symptoms. They should be tested by their healthcare provider approximately 5 days post exposure.

Vaccination Rates

Individuals who are not up-to-date with their COVID-19 vaccines (which currently means the individual has received a full series of COVID-19 vaccines, and one or two booster doses, if eligible) are NOT allowed on campus except for individuals with official accommodations or those still completing their vaccination series. There can be a lag between the actual vaccination rate and the numbers reported below due to several factors, including data migration, last-minute uploading of vaccine verifications by students, and students who have had only the first dose of a two-dose vaccine regimen (and who will be required to be tested weekly until two weeks after their second dose) or are not yet eligible for a booster dose based on the date they received the final dose of the initial vaccine series. 

The actual number of medical and religious accommodations (which Fordham is required to offer by state law) is below 1 percent: those individuals will have to be tested weekly for COVID-19, and are subject to other restrictions.

Masks

Masks are recommended but not required in classrooms, labs, work settings, and public spaces for individuals fully up-to-date on vaccinations (meaning an individual has received a full series of COVID-19 vaccines, and one or two booster doess, if eligible). All individuals may wear masks in any setting if they choose to do so. Faculty may require masks in classrooms and laboratory settings, if they believe the particular circumstances warrant such measures. Unvaccinated individuals with an exemption must still wear masks. Masks remain mandatory on Ram Vans and in University Health Service locations (offices, and testing and vaccination sites).
