As of May 12, 2023, Dominican University will no longer require members of the University community or visitors to be vaccinated against COVID-19. Vaccinations and boosters will continue to be strongly recommended because they remain effective in protecting the campus community.

Getting Tested

Testing is available at many walk-in clinics and pharmacies throughout Rockland County.  You can also test  yourself with at home COVID tests available at pharmacies. Testing for Flu, RSV and Covid19 are usually available at most urgent care facilities.

Protect yourself and others from Flu, COVID-19, and RSV

Respiratory viruses commonly cause illness such as flu, COVID-19, and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), especially in the fall and winter. There are actions you can take to protect yourself and others.

Preventing Spread of Respiratory Viruses When You’re Sick

Updated Guidance: The updated Respiratory Virus Guidance recommends that people stay home and away from others until at least 24 hours after both their symptoms are getting better overall, and they have not had a fever (and are not using fever-reducing medication). Note that depending on the length of symptoms, this period could be shorter, the same, or longer than the previous guidance for COVID-19.

When you may have a respiratory virus…‎

Stay home and away from others (including people you live with who are not sick) if you have respiratory virus symptoms that aren’t better explained by another cause. These symptoms can include fever, chills, fatigue, cough, runny nose, and headache, among others.*
