With the foundation of our extraordinarily high community vaccination rate, everyone is doing their part and making the smart choices that allow us to be safely together on campus.

我们都有责任减少COVID-19的传播. The simple actions you take each day help protect yourself and care for the RWU community.


Roger Williams University will no longer require students and employees to receive the Covid-19 vaccination, 从2023年秋季学期开始. 然而, we continue to strongly recommend completing the primary series of Covid-19 vaccination and remaining up to date on vaccination and boosters to prevent serious illness.

Students are encouraged (but not required) to provide their Covid vaccination records as they provide and update other vaccination records to Health Services.


如果您出现任何类似covid - 19的症状,请留在家中. 有任何流感样症状, 学生应该打电话给健康服务中心, and faculty and staff should call their primary care physicians.


该大学将不提供新冠病毒的快速检测. 作为准备工作, all students and employees are encouraged to obtain several home tests in advance in case they are needed. Students who are symptomatic can still make an appointment in Health Services to be tested.

Students who are asymptomatic and know they have had a close contact should monitor for symptoms and use their own rapid tests.  All employee testing must be done at home or through your medical provider.


If you have tested positive for Covid, students please fill out the Covid-19自我报告表格. After submitting the form, you will receive isolation instructions. It is each student’s responsibility to inform their instructors in advance that they will be missing class and to make arrangements to make up any missed work. You are encouraged to share your self-reporting form confirmation with your faculty. RWU employees who test positive need to inform Human Resources.


Isolation is a 5-day period, with day 0 being when symptoms started or the date you tested positive. 如果你没有症状或者你的症状正在改善, 您可以在第6天结束隔离并恢复正常活动. 在他人周围继续戴口罩5天. If you have a fever, continue to isolate until your fever resolves. 


如果一个学生有这样做的手段和能力, they should leave campus and isolate at their permanent place of residence until their isolation period is complete. 在大学宿舍隔离的学生, they must stay in their room as much as possible; wear a mask when a roommate is present in the room (except when you are sleeping) and keep the window open for fresh air exchange. 只要有新冠病毒阳性的学生离开病房, they must wear a well-fitted mask (except in the shower and brushing teeth), 保持社交距离, 良好的手卫生. Residents who have tested positive are not allowed to eat in the dining commons until their isolation period is complete; takeout options are available via the GetApp at Lower Commons.

密切接触者, 尤其是积极学生的室友, should monitor their symptoms and test immediately if they develop symptoms or if asymptomatic, monitor for symptoms for 5 days following notice of being a close contact of a positive case.


With the federal and state emergency orders no longer in effect, RWU返回掩码可选, except in Health Services where masks are required for students presenting with Covid-like symptoms. Students are encouraged to use a proper mask if they have symptoms for Covid and must wear a mask once testing positive.

Each of us should respect another individual's decision to wear a mask. 除了, 而我们的可选口罩政策仍然有效, we ask that each of us be considerate and cooperate when community members request mask wearing in an office, 教室或共用生活区. 


Wash your hands with soap and warm water for 20 seconds frequently, 以及当你接触到常用的表面时. This prevents the spread of germs on surfaces and mitigates exposure to viruses.
