The 2022 fall semester is here, and so is new information regarding COVID-19 on campus.
According to the Raider Respect webpage, the university currently does not require facemasks inside campus buildings or classrooms, with the exception of when visiting the Etter Health Center, the COVID-19 testing center, if determined by CDC community level or when requested before entering a staff or faculty member’s office.
Students who suspect they have COVID-19 and are symptomatic can receive a no-cost test at the Etter Health Center. Asymptomatic students may obtain a self-test kit at the Etter Health Center’s self-care area during normal business hours or in the lobby of the Reed Operations Center.
If you test positive, you are instructed to isolate. Isolation guidelines are located on the Raider Respect webpage.
For those who wish to stay up to date with their vaccinations, the university will be holding a COVID-19 booster vaccine clinic on Wednesday, Sept. 7, in CUB room 125 (Airport Lounge) from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. The Pfizer booster will be offered, and students must be at least six months out from completing their primary series of either Pfizer or Moderna or two months out from receiving their Johnson & Johnson vaccine to qualify.
The last day to sign up for the clinic is Sept. 5, and the sign-up page can be found in the link in the email sent out on Aug. 11. Please note that the clinic will be canceled if fewer than 10 individuals have signed up by the close date.
