Community Vaccination Rates
Effective Jan. 3, 2022, COVID-19 vaccination is now a required student immunization, joining MMR, Meningococcal Conjugate (ACWY), and Hepatitis B. This requirement applies to all Xavier students except those in fully-online graduate programs and APEX programs. Similarly, Xavier requires all employees to be vaccinated against COVID-19 or submit to weekly testing. Students and employees may both seek a medical or religious exemption. The University considers immunization exemptions on a case-by-case basis.
Student Vaccination Rate, as of Jan. 24, 2022
- Vaccinated = 95.2%
- Approved Medical or Religious Exemption = 4.8%
Employee Vaccination Rate, as of April 25, 2022
- Vaccinated = 96.9%
- Approved Medical or Religious Exemption or Weekly Testing = 3.1%
Total Positive Active Cases
The COVID-19 Task Force will update community COVID numbers on a weekly basis, every Tuesday. Daily numbers fluctuate as new positive cases are identified and others complete their isolation period and are no longer considered an active case. This weekly snapshot will be a more representative reflection of COVID in our community, after information from the weekend is processed.
On Tuesday, May 10 at noon:
- Total positive active employee cases = 0 (7-day average of cases = 3)
- Total positive active student cases = 1 (7-day average of cases = 6)
- Off-campus student isolation = 1
- On-campus student isolation = 0
Students who test positive for COVID outside of Student Health Services at the HUB are required to report their result to firstname.lastname@example.org. Employees who test positive are expected to report their result to the Office of Human Resources at email@example.com.
