COVID-19 Campus Policies
In response to the global pandemic and in an effort to maintain a safe and robust campus, along with other mitigating efforts, Caldwell University instituted a mandatory COVID vaccination policy and recommendation for a booster for all students, faculty, and staff.
Your vaccination records must include a copy of your government-issued COVID vaccine card showing proof of a completed COVID series and must be uploaded to the Health Services portal. Students living in campus housing must have completed the COVID vaccine series prior to their move-in date.
The University will consider exemptions limited to medical issues as outlined by the CDC or religious beliefs that prohibit vaccination against COVID-19. Students who wish to submit an application for an exemption should send an email to Student Health Services at SHS@Caldwell.edu. Employees should email human resources at HR@caldwell.edu.
Religious exemptions must include a completed application and a supporting letter signed by the student explaining how the COVID 19 vaccine is against their religious beliefs.
Medical exemption applications must be completed, signed, and stamped by their physician.
All exemption applications must be uploaded to the Health Services portal for consideration.
Caldwell University lifted its indoor mask mandate effective Saturday, March 12th, 2022. Mask wearing will be optional except as noted below. Those who wish to continue to wear a mask may do so.
Masks may still be required in the following situations:
- Inside the Wellness Center if exhibiting respiratory symptoms or if instructed otherwise by a healthcare professional
- Days 6-10 following quarantine or isolation
- Days 1-10 regardless of vaccination status if you have been identified as a household contact of someone who tested positive when around others
- As required at external sites including clinical and internship locations
- As required by the NCAA for Student-Athletes and Athletic staff members
Caldwell’s isolation policy has also been updated to mirror the recommendations from the CDC.
All Students, faculty and staff must continue to report when they have tested positive for COVID-19. We also expect compliance with the process of contact tracing as needed.
As we move forward, we appreciate your continued compliance and personal responsibility to ensure Caldwell University continues to be a safe place for education, community, and growth.
