NEW: Updated Event and Visitor Guidance Effective March 2022
3/22/2022 – We are happy to share that, due to decreased case counts and the ongoing diligence of our students, faculty and staff in getting boosted and continuing to wear masks, we are now able return to a more traditional event planning and facilitation process now through Commencement weekend.
While we are confident that our ongoing mitigation efforts will continue to be successful, we also remain cognizant that COVID behaves unpredictably, and we may see upticks in case counts. With that in mind, please be aware that these updated protocols are subject to change. We will continue to lean on the guidance of our public health partners and will share any updates on changes in restrictions or processes should any new decisions be made by University leadership.
Spring 2022 Masking Policy
On March 3, President McCulloh announced updates to Gonzaga's masking policy for the remainder of the Spring semester. Indoor use of masks will continue to be required at Gonzaga University through Friday, March 25, 2022. We believe this will help reduce the rate of viral transmission following Spring Break travel. Thereafter, a multi-faceted approach to indoor mask-wearing is operative, effective March 26, 2022.
Booster Vaccine and Testing Requirements for Spring 2022 Semester
All vaccinated students, faculty and staff are required to receive a booster shot within 14 days of becoming eligible. All unvaccinated students must continue to test for COVID-19 if signs, symptoms or exposure present themselves.
