Plans for a healthy and safe spring restart

Update: March 9, 2022

Remaining healthy heading into the spring semester and beyond

Rowan University’s priority will continue to be the health and safety of our community and neighbors. As the status of the pandemic and federal and state recommendations continue to change, we appreciate everyone’s patience and support as we develop policies during this very fluid situation. Please review the following site for guidelines in place as of today.

Mask Protocols
As of March 7, indoor masking will be optional on all campuses except in the following cases:

  • In health care clinical settings (wearing a mask is required);
  • On public transportation, including the Rowan Shuttle;
  • When you have been exposed to someone with COVID-19;
  • When you are instructed to wear a mask by a healthcare provider;
  • If you feel ill with upper respiratory symptoms or you are COVID-positive, and isolate.

The masking change is for everyone, regardless of vaccination status. Unvaccinated individuals still must undergo weekly COVID-19 testing.

It’s important for all of us to remember that some people may feel uncomfortable being around unmasked individuals. Additionally, many vaccinated individuals may choose to wear a mask for their own safety or for the safety of their loved ones. Please be respectful of everyone’s choices.

In instances such as one-on-one meetings, either party may request that a mask be worn. If that is not acceptable to either person, an alternative arrangement should be scheduled.
