TESTING

Asymptomatic Testing

Weekly asymptomatic testing for students, faculty and staff who will be on campus will restart the week of January 31, 2022.

  • Fully vaccinated, booster-eligible students, faculty and staff who have not yet been boosted because they have received an exemption or deadline extension from the booster shot requirement will need to test once per week.
  • Students, faculty and staff who are exempt from vaccination for religious or medical reasons will need to continue to test twice per week.

All other students, faculty and staff will be randomly selected for asymptomatic testing each week.


 

Symptomatic Testing

Students, faculty and staff experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 must complete the COVID-19 Symptom Check-In survey and get tested as soon as possible. Do not return to class or work until cleared by their physician or after a consultation with the Care Navigator team.

 


“Close Contact” or Exposure Testing

We continue to test asymptomatic individuals who have been informed that they are a close contact, or believe they have been in close contact with or potentially exposed to, somebody who has tested positive for COVID-19.


On-Demand Testing

Free COVID-19 testing is available on demand on Georgetown’s campuses. Georgetown has partnered with One Medical to provide COVID-19 PCR testing on campus at no charge to University community members.

Antigen Testing

Free antigen test kits are available to all students regardless of their residence. In most cases, PCR testing is preferred, but if you are exposed or have symptoms when PCR testing is unavailable (weekends, evenings, holidays), or there are other circumstances that necessitate an Antigen test, please email the Care Navigator team to request an antigen test.
QUARANTINE AND ISOLATION

Quarantine

The purpose of quarantine is to keep people at high risk of developing COVID-19 separate from others until they can be sure they do not have COVID-19. Quarantine is particularly important for COVID-19 because some people are able to transmit the virus to others before they show symptoms, test positive, or know they have COVID-19.

Georgetown University students, faculty and staff will self-quarantine, including as directed by Georgetown or by the DC Department of Health or relevant state or local public health authorities.

For Off-Campus Students, self-quarantine in your off-campus residence. (At this time, the University is not able to provide on-campus space, arrange food delivery, or provide other services to off-campus students who are required to self-quarantine.)

For more information on how and when to quarantine, please visit the University’s Quarantine and Isolation page

 
Isolation

Georgetown University students, faculty and staff will isolate if they receive a positive COVID-19 test result. Isolation is stricter than quarantine and is used to curb the spread of the virus by separating people who have tested positive or are sick with the virus from people who are not infected.

Individuals who test positive through One Medical testing or report a positive test result via the COVID-19 Test Result Submission Form will automatically receive an email from Georgetown’s Care Navigator team with important information about isolation protocols. Please make sure to review the email thoroughly and follow all instructions.

Individuals who test positive for COVID-19, regardless of vaccination status, previous infection or the presence or absence of symptoms, will need to isolate for at least 5 full days.

For more details on how to be cleared from isolation, please visit the University’s Quarantine and Isolation page

MASKS

Given the enhanced transmissibility of the Omicron variant, students, faculty and staff should wear a properly-fitted, high-grade mask (e.g., N95, KN95, KF94) while on campus. 

Community members cannot wear a cloth mask or a mask with a vent or valve, because these masks do not sufficiently reduce the transmission of the virus from exhaled droplets and aerosol particles that might contain the virus.

Students are required to wear masks while in class, unless they have a University-approved disability accommodation. No eating or drinking in class is permitted, unless the individual has a medical accommodation. 

The Office of Neighborhood Life has KN95 masks that they can provide. If you need a mask, please email ONL to schedule a pick up.
