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:   
 
  • Get vaccinated and boosted for COVID-19
  • Stay home if feeling sick, no matter how mild (or whatever) the symptoms 
  • Get tested if feeling sick or have been in contact with a positive COVID case
  • Practice good hygiene by washing or sanitizing hands
  • Masks are optional everywhere on campus; however, please wear a mask if feeling sick or identified as a close contact per latest CDC guidance  
Free KN95 masks are available in Student Affairs (Woodland Hall) for any student or employee who wants masks.  Please remember that anyone may choose to wear a mask wherever and whenever they wish, and we continue to ask everyone to treat each other with kindness and respect. 
 
The CDC’s strongest COVID-19 public health measure continues to be the guidance to stay up to date on COVID-19 vaccines, including receiving a booster shot. As a reminder, all community members will be required to have proof of vaccination (including booster) or a waiver request on file for the 22-23 academic term. 

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