COVID-19: Information & Procedures (Fall 2021)
All reliable and verifiable data points to the fact that the vaccinations that are currently available are safe and effective. People who have been vaccinated make up less than 1% of hospitalizations and deaths in NJ, according to figures released within the last couple of weeks by the state department of health. St. Benedict’s expects all faculty and staff to be vaccinated by September.
We have instituted a vaccine requirement for everyone who lives in the Leahy House. We are currently considering requirements for athletes and for all eligible students.
Based on the current guidance from the CDC and the State of NJ, those who have been vaccinated do not have to quarantine in the event that they are exposed to a COVID case. This means that even if someone tests positive on a team or in a classroom, vaccinated individuals will be able to continue about their everyday classes and activities with minimal interruption.Record of Vaccines should be uploaded to each individuals Magnus health account.
