GW Health: COVID-19 Updates

GW University Policies

The University's Covid-19 update policies were updated on May 9, 2023 in response to the expiration of the federal Covid-19 public health emergency.  See the GW's Coronavirus Response page for details (last updated September 2023).

  • The University strongly recommends but no longer requires vaccination.
  • Masks are optional but may be required in some spaces such as health care facilities.
  • COVID-19 testing, contact tracing and related services have concluded. The University will continue to monitor the incidence of COVID-19  and make adjustments to policies as needed to support the health and safety of the community.
  • Students should continue to visit the Student Health Center for their medical needs, and faculty and staff should consult with their physicians. The CDC provides guidance on steps to take if exposed to COVID-19 as well as isolation and precautions for individuals with COVID-19.
