The health and safety of the Rutgers University community remains the top priority as in-person events and activities resume. While you are here celebrating, we ask that you and your guests follow the New Jersey COVID-19 Guidelines below:
- “To save lives and stop the spread of COVID-19, you should wear a mask and social distance if you are not vaccinated, wash your hands, and stay home if you are sick.
- COVID-19 remains a threat, particularly at indoor gatherings with unvaccinated individuals. Follow the safety tips from the CDC and the NJ Department of Health to protect yourself and avoid putting your loved ones at risk”
We encourage you to continue checking the New Jersey COVID-19 Information Hub for the most up to date information and guidelines regarding public safety.
