General information

In order to access a Dartmouth location or Dartmouth-sponsored event, all visitors 5 years of age or older must:

  • Be up to date on their COVID-19 vaccinations, including getting a booster dose within 30 days of becoming eligible; OR
  • Receive a negative test result from a COVID-19 test (i.e., PCR or antigen) taken within 72 hours prior, preferably as close to access as possible; OR
  • Have tested positive for COVID-19 within the 90 days prior and recovered (i.e., they have ended isolation and do not have symptoms).

The states of New Hampshire and Vermont offer more information on accessing COVID-19 PCR and antigen tests or visitors can use a self-test kit.

Visitors should be prepared to show proof of vaccination or a negative test to access Dartmouth locations. Those who are 13 years of age or older can create a Dartmouth-wide health pass using the Bindle app. Those not using Bindle may be required to provide vaccination or test documentation when accessing a Dartmouth location or Dartmouth-sponsored event.
