Nazareth College’s pandemic guidelines align with New York state and the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention protocols for higher education.

The College is proceeding with all course instruction and residency plans for the fall semester.

Mask protocol

As of Aug. 3, 2021: Masks are required indoors on campus for all students, faculty, staff, and visitors, with these exceptions:

  • Private spaces — An individual may remove their face covering when alone in a private room/office.
  • Housing — In a residence hall room or apartment with your own roommates, students may remove the face covering.
  • Eating and drinking – You may remove your face covering to eat or drink. An unvaccinated individual (who should have a documented exemption from the vaccine requirement, per Nazareth policy) should maintain six feet of social distance from others. Face coverings should be replaced immediately when finished.

If you need a face covering, please contact Campus Safety or Health and Counseling.

Other protocols

Other protocols on campus returned to normal in June 2021 and are not affected:

  • Social distancing is not required, except in health care settings, and for unvaccinated individuals when eating or drinking. Anyone who is more comfortable social distancing may do so. Our community will demonstrate respect and care for all individuals.
  • 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.

  • Dining facilities operate under normal density and hours.
  • Gyms operate without restrictions.
  • College athletics are not restricted.
