A Healthy Hartwick
TOGETHER, WE ARE ONE wick
Required proof of vaccination: The deadline for submitting record of full vaccination is August 1. All students and employees who have not been granted a College approved medical or religious accommodation are required to submit their vaccination record on or before August 1.
Visitors: Face masks will continue to be required of all visitors unless they have been fully vaccinated and show proof of their vaccination. This includes all sponsored visitors, vendors, delivery persons, etc. At this time, visitor approval must be granted by a member of the Senior Leadership Team. Campus remains closed to the public.
Special requirements for those who apply for and are granted an accommodation from the vaccination requirement based upon medical necessity or closely held religious beliefs: The College will continue to evaluate CDC guidance for unvaccinated individuals. Requirements for unvaccinated students or employees may change as circumstances require. At this time, any unvaccinated person will be required to wear a face mask at all times while on campus, including outdoors, except when eating or drinking or in the privacy of their own room, office or vehicle. Compliance with this requirement will be monitored and enforced.
Students who return to campus under an accommodation will be required to submit the results of a negative COVID test upon arrival to campus. This test must have been taken within 48 hours of arrival. Regular COVID-19 testing will not be required by, or provided by the College.
Students or employees who express COVID-19 symptoms:
Students: Any student who expresses symptoms of COVID-19, regardless of vaccination status, must report these symptoms and obtain a COVID-19 rapid test at the Perrella Wellness Center. There will be no charge for this test.
Employees: Any employee who expresses symptoms of COVID-19, regardless of vaccination status, must:
- Notify their supervisor and the Perrella Wellness Center, remain off campus secure their own COVID test (off campus), submit their COVID-19 test results to Perrella, and
- must receive Perrella clearance to return to campus before they will be permitted to do so.
Daily COVID-19 Case updates on the Hartwick website:
NYS no longer requires daily reporting of COVID cases. As such, and now that we have maintained a 14 day rolling average of zero active cases and zero new cases, the College will no longer post daily case count updates to the webpage.
COVID-19 surveillance testing in the fall semester: Except as noted above for those who are symptomatic, regular (surveillance) testing for COVID-19 will not be conducted by the College. Exceptions to this plan may be made as required by health, governmental or associational authorities such as the NCAA.
Masking for fully vaccinated students and employees:
- Masking is not required of fully vaccinated employees or students.
- Vaccinated students and employees are welcome to and encouraged to mask as a way of protecting their own health if they wish to do so.
Daily symptom screening and reporting:
The College will no longer require daily symptom screening and reporting.
The College urges every student and employee to continue to monitor for COVID-19 symptoms and act as noted above should symptoms appear.
Hear directly from faculty and staff at Hartwick talk about why they chose to get vaccinated.
