COVID-19 VACCINATION POLICY:
Effective as of May 1, 2023, Georgian Court University will no longer require that students be vaccinated against COVID-19. In alignment with Georgian Court’s Catholic value of care for each other, we do strongly recommend that all members of the university community receive the COVID-19 vaccine primary series and bivalent booster. High vaccination levels have protected the university community.
Please note that students and faculty engaged in clinical/field work or other experiential learning are required to follow each clinical or field site’s policies, which may include proof of full vaccination.
COVID-19 CASE MANAGEMENT:
We will continue to require all students and employees to inform the University of their COVID-19 vaccination status. Students provide their records on the student health portal; employees provide records to the Office of Human Resources. This allows the university to respond appropriately to any outbreak situation on campus. All students must report positive tests for COVID-19 to Health Services. All employees (staff/faculty) must report positive tests for COVID-19 to the Office of Human Resources.
Georgian Court University is mask friendly. While masks are generally not required, they may be worn by anyone who feels more comfortable with a mask. In addition,
- Masks MUST be worn in Health Services and the Counseling Center.
- Masks may be requested to be worn by faculty/staff for specific programs, classes or in certain offices. All members of the Georgian Court community may request that others wear a mask during meetings or other activities. Complying is a sign of respect consistent with our commitment to our care for each other. Please keep a mask with you at all times.
- Masks may be required indoors if the number of cases rise either on campus or in the community. Notification will be made via the Georgian Court website and signage.
