All students who plan to be on campus must follow these safety requirements:
Bring a Well-Fitting Mask with You
Free KN95 masks are available on campus, on a first come first served basis, at the Ellison Campus Center test site, Counseling and Health services, and Human Resources.
Salem State is a mask-flexible environment where masks are optional in nearly all circumstances and locations, with individuals choosing for themselves whether or not to wear a mask depending on the situation, their own comfort level, or for medical reasons. (Athletics will continue to follow MASCAC guidelines.)
Comply with the Vaccine Mandate
Students, employees and all community members must be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 or submit an exemption and participate in weekly testing.
The mandate now includes the booster requirement. If you are eligible for a booster you must access the booster as soon as possible.
If a student is fully remote and not living on campus, or participating in athletics, no action is needed to be in compliance.
If you are experiencing any new symptoms associated with COVID, do not come to campus. Notify your faculty or supervisor.
Please access testing and do not return to campus until you have received a negative test result. This may require you to be off campus for 48-72 hours.
If you use an at home test and it is negative but your symptoms persist or worsen, please repeat testing and seek confirmatory molecular testing (such as a PCR). Students who seek medical evaluation and treatment can schedule an appointment on their student health portal or follow up with their primary care provider. Employees should consult with their primary care provider.
If a student is dealing with a serious medical condition that is not Covid-related but will require them to be out of class for more than a week, they can provide medical documentation to firstname.lastname@example.org and receive assistance with communicating medical absence to faculty.
