Infectious Disease Policy (including COVID-19)
COVID-19 Vaccination Policy Update 2023
Rosemont College strongly recommends that students and employees stay current, including any booster recommendations, however, vaccination is no longer required.
The vaccine for COVID-19 continues to be strongly recommended for all community members; however, the COVID-19 vaccine will no longer be a requirement for attendance at the College due to the high level of community immune protection, either via vaccine or prior illness. The vaccine has been proven effective in avoiding severe illness and death from the COVID-19 virus, and we strongly recommend that all members of this community follow the advice of the CDC and take advantage of the most current guidelines and recommendations.
