As we continue to review plans to protect our students, faculty, and staff during the evolving COVID-19 pandemic, the medical services staff is committed to the continuation of our protocols and procedures as we work together in mitigating risk for our community. We are guided in our planning by the recommendations and mandates of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH).
Currently all community members are required to be fully vaccinated with an FDA or WHO authorized COVID vaccine. This represents the best opportunity to provide a safe and healthy in-person school year and protects our larger campus community.
We will continue to uphold key practices involved in the shared obligation to maintain our community’s safety to include: promotion of regular hand hygiene, enhanced cleaning procedures, daily symptom screening, testing for symptomatic students, regular asymptomatic testing for students who have exemptions from vaccination, swift contact tracing, and implementation of isolation and quarantine when needed.
