Summer Orientation Safety Measures
In order to attend Summer Orientation in June, students need to provide proof of being “Up to Date” (primary series and booster) with COVID-19 vaccination by Monday, June 13, or a negative COVID-19 test within 7 days of the start of the student’s planned Summer Orientation session.
Proof of COVID-19 Vaccination Requirement
In order to address the health and safety of individuals who attend Summer Orientation in June, Stonehill College is requiring that students provide proof of being “Up to Date” with COVID-19 vaccination by Monday, June 13. This vaccination information must be uploaded to the Student Health Portal.
“Up to Date” with vaccination is defined as a person who has received one of the vaccines authorized for emergency use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration or by the World Health Organization, and is:
- Two weeks after vaccination with the second dose in a two-dose series, such as the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, or two weeks after vaccination with a single-dose vaccine, such as the Johnson & Johnson vaccine
- AND has received a first booster dose of the vaccine, if eligible
For those who do not meet these vaccination requirements and still wish to attend Summer Orientation, the College requires proof of a negative RT-PCR test or Rapid Antigen test* within 7 days prior to your orientation session. Please upload proof of negative test to the Student Health Portal.
- Those attending Session I on June 21 - 22 should test and upload result between June 14 - 16
- Those attending Session II on June 24 - 25 should test and upload result between June 18 - 21
*At-home, self-administered rapid antigen tests are acceptable. The student’s name, date of birth, the date they took the test, and the “Brand of Test” must be written on the test card, if possible. A photograph of this test card can be uploaded as proof. If the test device is not conducive to writing directly on it, please write the required information on a piece of paper and photograph the test strip/device with the information visible in the same photo.
