  • Mandatory surveillance testing for fully vaccinated members of the Rice community is no longer required. [Rice defines fully vaccinated as having received the two-shot Pfizer or Moderna regime plus a booster shot or the one-shot J&J vaccine plus a booster.]
  • On-campus PCR testing from both Methodist and Baylor Genetics will continue to be available to everyone who wants a test, Monday through Friday. If you have an exposure to someone who has tested positive, we urge you to get tested. We will be suspending the on-campus PCR testing with Baylor and Methodist over the course of the summer beginning on Friday, May 13. The last day for testing with Methodist will be Wednesday, May 11.
  • People who are not fully vaccinated must continue to test once per week through our on-campus PCR testing program.
  • Daily symptomatic testing will continue on campus, and those with COVID symptoms should be tested as soon as possible.
