Health Advisory

Here is the weekly report of confirmed cases of COVID-19 on the Montclair State University campus for the week ending Thursday, October 1.

Eight new confirmed cases of COVID-19 were reported this week. Seven are students and one is an employee. All are isolating and doing well.

Their close contacts are being notified and placed in quarantine, as required by our policy.

These new cases bring the total number of confirmed cases on campus since the start of the fall semester to 18 (16 students, two employees).

University Health Center Director Patricia Ruiz reminds all members of the campus community that they are required to follow the general safeguards to reduce the risk of spreading the virus, including wearing face coverings (covering both your mouth and nose), observing social distancing, practicing good hand hygiene and covering coughs and sneezes.

Students, faculty and staff must complete Hawk Check 6 to 14 hours before coming to campus, and no one may come to campus if they are sick or exposed to COVID-19 in the last 2 weeks.

Anyone who becomes aware of a potential case should encourage the person to complete Hawk Check, and may also share that information confidentially with the University Health Center through the Rave Guardian app or by sending an email to Patricia Ruiz at
