The Xavier community has collectively done an excellent job of mitigating the spread of COVID-19 and promoting a healthy environment for our students and colleagues. The University's COVID-19 Task Force will continue to monitor our campus and local environments and will be prepared to respond as needed to keep our community safe. Continued flexibility and adaptability will be essential as the University responds to changing public health guidelines going forward.
COVID-19 Vaccination Expectations
All students and employees must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or have an approved medical or religious exemption on file. “Fully vaccinated” means having received two doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines or one dose of the J&J/Janssen vaccine. Xavier will also accept vaccines approved for Emergency Use Authorization by the World Health Organization. Remaining “up to date” with all available COVID-19 vaccines is highly recommended for all members of the Xavier community. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website offers more information on COVID-19 booster doses.
Xavier will continue to recommend individual health-promoting practices and community resources that, taken together, create a safer environment for our community. Practices will be adjusted as public health guidelines shift over time.
