We hope this finds you healthy and well. Health Services is requesting that you upload your COVID vaccination status to your HaverHealth student portal no later than July 12, 2021. After July 12, we will start sending out individual reminders. Please be aware that students will not be permitted on campus unless they are vaccinated. There are two exceptions to this policy - a written letter from your healthcare provider for a medical condition that precludes you from obtaining the COVID vaccine or a written letter from your clergy that confirms sincerely held religious beliefs.
International students that do not have access to the college-approved vaccine in their country will be provided the opportunity to receive the vaccine once they arrive on campus. Please be in touch with Health Services if you feel this applies to you.
This year, we are NOT requiring a negative COVID test prior to arrival to campus. However, upon arrival to campus, all students must get tested. We will be partnering with Genetworx again this semester to carry out the testing on campus. You will be receiving information from Health Services and Genetworx in future communications regarding arrival testing.
Those students arriving on campus that are not vaccinated will be on room quarantine until their initial COVID test results are back. All International students will tested upon arrival to campus. Those students that do not have the COVID vaccine will be on room quarantine until their initial test results are back (approximately 24-36 hours). With a negative result, international students will then be on campus quarantine for 3 days until they receive their second COVID test.
Students that are not vaccinated will be tested monthly throughout the academic year. Compliance and communication will come from Health Services. Additional details regarding room and campus quarantine will be forthcoming.
Finally, first and second year students must continue to upload their required health related documentation, including all vaccinations, prior to August 1st in order to avoid a late fee. All students must "enroll" or "waive" from the Student Health Insurance Plan by August 1st.
Our goal is to communicate throughout the summer so that arrival to campus is safe, informed, and seamless!
Please call our office for any questions or concerns. Take good care this summer.
