In an effort to provide the best possible academic and student experience in the safest possible environment, we will continue to require masking of all individuals, regardless of vaccination status, while indoors on campus. We encourage all members of the community to wear a well fitted N95 or KN95 mask. As an alternative, people may consider double masking with a surgical mask and a cloth mask. Masks must cover both the nose and the mouth and fit tightly to the face with no gaps.
Last week, we shared the revised COVID Vaccine Policy, requiring all members of the community to get a booster shot, with the exception of those who have an approved exemption. The full policy, including timeline associated with booster eligibility, is available online: https://www.chc.edu/vaccination-policy.
As always, all members of the community are expected to conduct a daily self-health assessment. If you are feeling ill or awaiting results from a COVID test, please do not come to campus. Symptoms vary from person to person, but include fever, headache, chills, body aches, sore throat, cough, and nausea.
Additional information for students, faculty, and staff will be forthcoming from the Offices of Academic Affairs and Student Life. The latest information and most recent announcements will continue to be available on our website at: https://www.chc.edu/chestnut-hill-college-covid-19-announcements-and-cares-information.
