Nazareth College’s pandemic guidelines align with New York state and the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention protocols for higher education, which lifted most pandemic restrictions in June 2021.

Those changes, coupled with Nazareth’s vaccine requirement for all students, faculty, and staff, mean Nazareth has resumed normal operations.

  • Masks are not required on campus, with these exceptions:
    • Unvaccinated individuals who have been granted an exemption should continue to wear a mask indoors, per federal Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidance. 
    • In health care settings: Nazareth’s Health and Counseling office and the clinics in York Wellness and Rehabilitation Institute on campus continue to require masking, distancing, and cleaning protocols. 
    • On public transit (Regional Transit Service buses).
  • Social distancing is no longer required in classrooms or elsewhere on campus, except the health care settings above.
  • Workplaces: Offices and research labs can operate at full density.
  • Daily health screenings and kiosk check-ins are no longer required for anyone on campus.
  • Gathering sizes are not limited.
  • Additional cleaning and disinfection protocols are no longer required.
  • Dining facilities operate under normal density and hours.
  • Gyms operate without restrictions.
  • College athletics are no longer restricted.
  • Tunnels are open.
  • Campus visitors/guests are welcome and do not need to register, including family members, alumni, prospective students, and event attendees (sports, performances, etc.). Anyone who is not fully vaccinated needs to wear a mask indoors on campus.

Anyone who is more comfortable masking and social distancing may continue to do so. Our community will demonstrate respect and care for all individuals, including the personal choice to continue wearing masks.
