CBU’s Return to Campus Plan
CBU COVID HEALTH CHECK
All visitors to campus are required to complete a daily CBU COVID HEALTH CHECK before being allowed on campus, and all resident students must also complete the assessment daily, given their on-campus presence. You will receive immediate results via email or to display on your phone. If you are unable to complete the online assessment, paper forms will be available at the Central Ave. gate.CBU COVID CHECK
COVID Face Mask Protocols
In alignment with the guidance provided by local and national public health authorities, there remains in effect the campus requirement that all students, staff, and faculty must wear protective face masks in all enclosed public spaces. If this mask requirement is later rescinded, those approved for a religious or medical exemption from the vaccination requirement will be required to continue to wear protective face masks in all public spaces on campus (including, but not limited to, classrooms, offices, lounges, reception areas, hallways, study areas, dining facilities, athletic facilities, and public outdoor spaces) while also maintaining physical distancing in classrooms, laboratories, and other academic spaces.
As a supplement to the requirement for masks to be worn in all interior spaces on campus, eating is prohibited during all on-campus class sessions. Students and instructors may remove masks temporarily to sip drinks, but masks must remain on otherwise. Exemptions to this policy may be sought for classes that require or routinely accommodate in-session dining. Requests for exemptions must be submitted by faculty members to their school deans, who will in turn submit the request to the Vice President for Academics.
Mandatory COVID-19 Vaccination Policy
Together and by association, while looking out and caring for each other, our CBU community worked hard to make this past academic year a success, despite the considerable challenges and many hardships presented by the COVID-19 pandemic.
As we prepare for the 2021-22 academic year, it is now time for us to once again work together so that we can assure a return to a safe, vibrant, and engaged on-campus learning, working, and living experience this fall.
This will be possible due to safe and effective vaccines, which have been approved or authorized by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and proven to significantly reduce COVID-19 transmission and the risk of serious illness when the disease is contracted.
To that end, COVID-19 vaccinations are required for all persons who live, learn, and work on the Christian Brothers University campus beginning this fall. This requirement applies to all of the following, unless an exemption or reasonable accommodation is approved:
- Students living on campus
- Students attending classes on campus
- Student athletes
- Faculty teaching classes on campus
- Staff working on campus
Christian Brothers University is committed to providing a safe and supportive environment for all our students, faculty, staff, alumni and community members during the COVID-19 public health crisis.
