As we return to in-person classes, it is important to maintain a safe and healthy learning environment for all students by following the new campus guidelines regarding COVID-19.
Guidelines Regarding All Students
All students are required to provide proof of full vaccination or have an approved religious or medical exemption before they may enroll in classes.
Everyone must wear a facial covering, regardless of vaccination status, and observe COVID-19 safety protocols, such as frequent hand washing and maintaining a physical distance.
Guidelines Regarding Visitors
Visitors are also required to present proof of being fully vaccinated. Those attending an indoor athletic, academic, or art event must show proof of being fully vaccinated or a negative COVID-19 test, which should be taken no more than 72 hours before entry into facilities. A person wearing a face covering may temporarily enter onto campus for up to 15 minutes to use restroom facilities, drop off or pick up items or equipment, or food from the pantry.
Medical or Religious Exemptions
Twice-weekly testing is mandatory for all students with medical or religious exemptions.
Please note: Nothing to eat, drink, chew or smoke an hour before the test.
Location of testing: Outdoor tent south side of Cafeteria.
Hours of testing: Monday – Thursday, 9 a.m. – 6 p.m.
Individuals experiencing COVID-19 symptoms must use the outdoor testing option located in the parking stall behind the cafeteria.
In general, people are considered fully vaccinated:
2 weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or
2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine.
As of the moment, a booster shot is not required to be fully vaccinated.
If a student experiences flu-like symptoms as a result of the vaccine and cannot attend classes, they should contact their faculty and instructors regarding minor illnesses or disability services to address any issues.
If you receive a positive test, you will quarantine for at least 10 days while your response team conducts a contact tracing investigation to mitigate any other potential infections.
