Health & Safety Protocols

Chatham takes your health very seriously, and that’s why we’ve implemented some protocols and requirements to help keep you safe.

Health & Safety Protocols

To protect the health of each other, everyone on campus should:   

  1. Get vaccinated and boosted for COVID-19
  2. Wear a surgical or N95/KN95 mask and follow campus mask policy (see below)
  3. Stay home if feeling sick, no matter how mild (or whatever) the symptoms 
  4. If feeling sick or are a close contact, follow our protocols and steps
  5. Practice good hygiene by washing or sanitizing hands

These protocols and requirements may be subject to change based on updated health guidelines and the status of campus operations.


Mask Requirements

Update: January 11, 2022
Based on the latest CDC guidance, Chatham’s mask policy no longer permits “gaiter” style masks. Our mask policy now strongly recommends surgical or N95 or KN95 masks for all community members and visitors. If this type of mask is not possible for any reason, masks must consist of a properly fitting cloth mask. To help our community adapt to this new policy, Chatham will provide two KN95 masks for all employees and students beginning this week. 
 

Update: August 6, 2021
We are updating our campus mask policy based on the new CDC recommendation for fully vaccinated people to wear a mask in public indoor settings in areas of substantial or high transmission. 
 
Beginning Monday, August 9, masks will temporarily be required inside all public areas of campus buildings regardless of vaccination status. Masks are not required outside, when eating or alone in an office or campus room. 
 
 As the health guidance and/or transmission rates decline, Chatham will adjust our mask policies accordingly. 
 

 

Update: June 28, 2021
On June 28, 2021, the Pennsylvania Department of Health lifted the order requiring universal face coverings for the state of Pennsylvania. In response to the lifting of this state mask order and in alignment with the latest CDC guidance on masks, Chatham’s mask policy is as follows:

  • Masks are not required outside regardless of vaccination status.
  • If fully vaccinated, masks are not required inside campus buildings.
  • If not vaccinated, masks should be worn inside campus buildings per the CDC.
  • People may choose to still wear a mask (even if vaccinated) in all settings, so please be kind and respectful to everyone.

Some modifications may be made to Chatham’s mask policy over the summer and this fall, including different mask requirements for Day Camp, when in Student Health Services, and when in close contact/hands-on health education settings. In addition, mask requirements may be reinstated during the academic year if health guidance and/or disease prevalence require them.
