Recent Updates: Visit our COVID-19 Community Guide for information about in-person teaching and learning this fall. 

  • To help identify the level of risk on our campus, The New School has implemented a color-coded system to provide additional details about the COVID-related circumstances that would require the university to adjust activities and protocols on our campus. 

    The framework includes three levels based on data collected through the university’s testing program and virus prevalence in New York City.

    • Green: Low risk with minimal impact on academic planning and university life.
    • Yellow: Medium risk with contained virus transmission on campus and in the surrounding neighborhood.
    • Red: High risk with cases significantly increasing above our baseline on campus and in the surrounding neighborhood.

    The level will determine which health and safety protocols will be in effect. You can view the framework here.

    We will keep the community informed if and when the level changes or individual areas are updated.

    Additional Scenarios 

    The New School actively monitors data acquired through its health screening and COVID-19 testing programs to identify positive cases on campus. The university is also alerted to any building-specific staffing or maintenance issues that may interfere with our ability to safely operate our buildings. Should a positive case be identified on campus or a safety issue arise in one of our facilities, the university will determine whether a temporary or indefinite shutdown of campus activity is necessary to reduce the risk of exposure and spread of COVID-19.

    Given the fluid nature of the pandemic, The New School may have to adjust campus access due to guidance or mandates from the NYC Department of Health and NYS Department of Health, which may impact academic and residential services.

    In the event of a cluster of cases in the residence halls, The New School — in collaboration with the Department of Health — may need to quarantine a floor or even an entire hall for a period of 14 days. In that event, the university would provide students with supportive services, including access to food and to alternate remote learning opportunities.
