Weekly Covid Newsletter

Cases on Campus

There were 4 new cases of COVID-19 on the campus in the week ending March 10, and 14 in the past seven days. Visit the COVID-19 dashboard for a breakdown of cases by students, employees and contractors.

None of those infected have needed to be hospitalized, according to Patricia Ruiz, director of the University Health Center, and there were no indications of clusters of cases or transmission in classrooms.

Keep Wearing Those Masks

In light of the CDC’s recent recommendations that make masks optional in many settings, the administration has asked the Community Health Advisory Team to provide a recommendation about possibly modifying our mask requirements. If any changes are to be made, they’ll most likely come at the end of March, says Vice President for Student Development and Campus Life Dawn Soufleris.

In the meantime our current mask policy remains in effect. Please wear a face covering consistently when indoors on the campus, and wear one outdoors when it’s not possible to practice social distancing. Thank you for helping keep our community safe!

Booster Clinic March 22

Need a booster shot? Mark your calendar for Tuesday, March 22 when the Essex County Department of Health will return to provide a COVID-19 vaccination clinic in the Student Center Ballrooms from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Reserve your time slot here, and then download this form, fill it out and bring it with you to the clinic. Also bring your vaccination card and your Montclair State University ID. The clinic is free and open to all students and employees. Residents of Essex County who are not members of our campus community are also welcome to attend.

Please act now to reserve your spot because appointments are filling up. The clinic will also take walk-ins from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Remember to bring your vaccination card and a completed registration form.
