TRAVEL
Vaccinated travelers
or those who have recovered from Covid-19 in the last 3 months no longer need to quarantine upon return to New Jersey. Unvaccinated travelers and residents entering New Jersey from any U.S. state or territory beyond the immediate region (New York, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, and Delaware) should self-quarantine for 10 days. Individuals who test negative on a viral test for Covid-19 obtained 3–5 days after returning, must self-quarantine for 7 full days. For the most up-to-date information on travel restrictions and other questions, view New Jersey Covid FAQs.

All individuals (vaccinated or not) who leave the state of New Jersey for more than 24 hours must complete the IAS Travel Questionnaire upon their return.

CAMPUS STATUS
The Institute campus remains partially reopened, and Faculty, Members, and a limited number of essential staff may request access to work in their offices. The Health Screening Form must be completed each morning before coming to campus and approved by the IAS Covid-19 Response Team.
To help ensure the safety of our community, we ask that you:

  • Keep indoor gatherings to a limit of 10 people per room, regardless of the number of seats.
  • Maintain physical distancing practices: stay 6 feet apart at all times.
  • Wear masks or face coverings in all indoor spaces on campus, including the laundry room and the activities center, and outdoors if social distancing isn't possible.
  • Do not enter any office other than your own.

Kindly note that access to campus will be restricted to the IAS community only. At this time, the Institute’s academic campus is not open to non-essential visitors, members of the public, or family members, including children. 

RETURN-TO-CAMPUS GUIDES
We have created a series of Return-to-Campus guides as a resource for the IAS community to help navigate returning to IAS during the partial reopening. The guides feature more in-depth information than shown on the website, and should be consulted before coming to campus. All current and future guides may be found at this link.
