Information Regarding Novel Coronavirus (COVID)

As of May 9, 2023, all incoming students and employees must have received at least one dose of any FDA- or WHO-authorized COVID vaccine. This will not impact current affiliates who have been vaccinated or have received an appropriate exemption.

The COVID vaccine mandate does not apply to JHU students and employees who are 100% remote (i.e., those who never visit any Johns Hopkins facility or conduct business in any public or private setting on Johns Hopkins’ behalf). Johns Hopkins Medicine and Applied Physics Laboratory employees are subject to their respective policies and procedures regarding COVID and influenza vaccination. School of Medicine affiliates follow JHM policies and procedures.
