At this time, the College will not require employees to receive the vaccine due. However, it is highly recommended that you receive the vaccine as it will help protect you, your family and friends, and our campus community from the virus. You should consult medical experts if you have specific questions about the vaccine.
Vaccinated* individuals are not required to wear face masks inside or outside of buildings while on campus and are no longer required to socially distance themselves from others. However, we suggest vaccinated individuals still consider social distancing when possible, particularly in the presence of large groups of people. Unvaccinated individuals are still required to wear masks while indoors and should continue to practice social distancing.
*According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), people are considered fully vaccinated for COVID-19 ≥2 weeks after they have received the second dose in a 2-dose series (Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna), or ≥2 weeks after they have received a single-dose vaccine (Johnson & Johnson [J&J]/Janssen).
