  • Students are required to be required to be vaccinated and boosted; employees are encouraged to receive vaccinations and boosters.
  • FIT does not require proof of vaccination from visitors.

Whether vaccinated or unvaccinated, individuals will be notified randomly by FIT Health Services. Testing continues to take place in the John E. Reeves Great Hall.
  • In addition, unvaccinated individuals must continue to be tested as part of FIT's ongoing COVID-19 protocols.
  • FIT Health Services continues to provide testing, vaccinations, booster shots, and surveillance testing in the John E. Reeves Great Hall, which will continue to be used for these purposes. Make an appointment for these services on the Health Services portal.

Vaccinations and Testing

  • All students and employees are required to submit a negative PCR test to the FIT Health Services portal taken no more than 72 hours prior to arriving on campus. Given the recent challenges in acquiring tests and the delays in processing results, you may submit a negative rapid (antigen) test taken on the day of your return to campus to the portal while waiting for your PCR test results. A rapid test may be taken at home or at a facility. Upload the negative PCR test results upon receipt. If you have not yet submitted a negative PCR test to the Health Services portal, please do so.
  • All students must upload evidence of their booster to the FIT Health Services Portal by February 11 or within five months from your last vaccination.  
  • Free flu shots are also available to the FIT community; schedule an appointment via the Health Services portal.
  • On-campus COVID-19 testing is performed in the John E. Reeves Great Hall. Visit the COVID-19 testing page for details.
