Testing Policy

  • 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.]
  • People who are not fully vaccinated must continue to test once per week using a COVID home kit provided by the university.

COVID home test kits for the Rice community are available to Rice students, faculty, and staff. These kits can be ordered for on-campus pickup and each test package contains two testing kits.
