Johns Hopkins University reinstates COVID testing, masking following spike in cases

April 7, 2022

Johns Hopkins University is reinstating temporary COVID-19 mitigation measures after almost 100 undergraduates tested positive for the virus within the last six days. Kevin Shollenberger, Hopkins’ vice provost for student health and well-being, announced the university is responding to the spike in cases by testing all undergraduate students twice per week from now until April 22. Testing may be extended following evaluation. Masking will be temporarily required in common areas in residence and dining halls, adding to the already existing mask mandate in Hopkins’ classrooms.
