As a starting position for the fall semester, all students and campus residents must test twice a week. (We will revisit these requirements in late September.)

All other individuals accessing campus buildings at least weekly must be tested for Covid once a week.

Covid Pass, MIT’s system for granting campus access to MIT community members, will automatically inform users when they need to test and send reminders if they are out of compliance.

Community members who are new to MIT or who have been away from campus for an extended period should review the reentry to campus policy.

Visitors are not required to have a negative Covid test before coming to MIT’s campus.

More information about testing is available via Covid Apps.
