Effective September 1, all members of the community must perform a health self-check and answer a 30-second questionnaire on each day they plan to come to campus (New Cairo and Tahrir Square). You will not be admitted from the gate unless you present the results of the self-check to the security at the gates.

September 17, Update on PCR Tests for Egypt Arrivals
Effective immediately, all passengers traveling to Egypt from Japan, China, Thailand, North America, Canada, United Kingdom, France and Germany will be permitted to provide a negative PCR test certificate 96 hours prior to their flight departure due to the long travel and transit periods. Arrivals from all other countries must provide a negative PCR test result 72 hours prior to arrival.
September 8, COVID-19 Contact Tracing System
For the past several months, the Office of Medical Services has been conducting contact tracing of all highly suspect or confirmed cases of COVID-19 to help determine who else on campus may have been exposed. Once those exposed have been identified, the medical services staff notifies them of their possible exposure, without identifying the individual. To enhance the current tracing system, the University will be adding WiFi data to help the clinic identify contacts of cases with the assistance of technology, in addition to the current interview process.
