COVID-19 Information

COVID-19 Protocols

International House has updated its policy and protocols to provide both staff and residents confidence that everyone has the resources and instructions they need, and that residents have the support of the staff to assist them while keeping everyone else healthy and safe.
The protocols differ depending on whether you live alone or with others.  Please carefully review these protocols and find the scenario that applies to you and become familiar with it now.  The most important take-aways that apply to all are:
  • Residents must submit proof of vaccination with their application to I-House. Boosters are required when you are eligible.
  • All guests must provide proof of vaccination upon arrival.
  • If you have not done so already, please promptly provide your contact information and two emergency contacts to the Admissions Office.
  • Call the Claremont Desk (212.316.8448) if you test positive for COVID-19 or are in close contact with someone with COVID-19 (or symptoms of COVID-19).
  • Stay calm and know that the staff will support you.
  • Follow all procedures as directed in the guide and by staff.  They will ensure that you are able to safely isolate (either in your room or in a dedicated isolation suite as appropriate).

Safety is Our Priority

International House is committed to ensuring the health and safety of our Residents. 

All Resident Members and guests must provide proof of vaccination when applying to join the community.

Updates will be posted here as well as the precautionary measures and protocols we are implementing to minimize the risk of exposure among our in-House population of Residents and Staff.
