COVID-19 Required Testing

Dear Members of the Harvard Chan School Community:

We hope you’ve had a chance to read yesterday’s message from the University that announced a transition to optional testing. Although we understand the University’s rationale for this policy change, after consulting with the University and the School’s COVID Planning Group, we have decided to continue required testing for our community through the last day of spring semester classes on Friday, May 13. That means that you should continue to test on your regular cadence through May 13. Please note that you can still test regularly beyond May 13, and you can still test as frequently as you wish at any time.

Thank you for doing your part to keep our community healthy and safe. We will keep you informed if there are any changes to our testing protocols in the coming days.


Katie and Jane
