A Safe Return to Campus

A Safe Return to Campus

We are excited for a full and vibrant return to our campus and learning centers and look forward to being together at Adelphi. We’re continually focused on our commitments to providing a world-class academic experience and safeguarding the wellbeing of our community.


We welcome your feedback and questions. Please feel free to reach out to our Health and Wellness team at healthandwellness@adelphi.edu.

New COVID-19 Booster and Testing Requirements for 2022

Documentation of booster shots is due by January 21, 2022. In addition, Adelphi community members who are not vaccinated must submit a weekly COVID-19 PCR test.

Read the latest requirements

Masks continue to be required at Adelphi for all individuals. Please wear your mask correctly — thanks for complying with this essential step for protecting one another.

The public health situation continues to evolve and we remain committed to the health and safety of our community. We are following the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and abiding by the requirements of New York state. Please follow this website for Adelphi’s most current COVID-19 protocols and requirements.

Important updates as of January 14, 2022

We will resume random surveillance testing of all members of the Adelphi population to continually assess infection rates in our community. Each week, 10 percent of individuals who access our campus locations will be randomly selected to receive Vault at-home test kits to submit a test. 

Throughout the semester we will also partner with vendors approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to provide pop-up testing by appointment for those members of our community who wish to be tested more frequently.

Masks continue to be required for all indoor locations at Adelphi, and outdoors when social distancing is not possible – regardless of vaccination status. We strongly encourage the use of medical/surgical masks instead of cloth masks. Medical masks are available in a variety of Adelphi locations, free to all community members who need them.

Adelphi health and wellness ambassadors and public safety officers across our Garden City campus, learning centers, and Panther shuttles will support our community’s continued compliance with our health and safety measures in place. These members of our community can also assist you with questions or concerns and direct you to on-site mask pickup locations.

Our quarantine and isolation periods remain unchanged at 10 consecutive days. We are maintaining the higher standard previously set by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). If you have questions, please contact Adelphi Health Services at healthservicescenter@adelphi.edu or 516.877.6000. 

Dining options that pose an increased risk for virus transmission are paused through March 1 (e.g. self-serve stations).

We encourage the use of online meetings and gatherings until March 1. In the event an in-person meeting is necessary, the following room capacity limits are reinstated:

  • a maximum of 50 people for indoor meetings, 
  • a maximum of 250 people for outdoor meetings and events,
  • a maximum of 50 percent of fire code capacity for large venue spaces. This includes the Performing Arts Center and the Thomas Dixon Lovely Ballroom in the Ruth S. Harley University Center.

Through March 1, campus catering will not be available for meetings and events, and removing masks for eating and drinking during meetings is not permitted.

Daily Health Screening Self Check

All Adelphi students, faculty, staff and Adelphi Gold members are required to conduct a COVID-19 health screening every day before entering campus.
