Student Cases on South Orange Campus

The numbers of positive cases and individuals in isolation have significantly declined. As of September 29, the 5-day moving average of positive cases stands at .4. There are approximately 26 individuals in isolation on and off-campus, significantly fewer than 75 a week ago. 2.6% of on campus quarantine and isolation beds are occupied.

Health Services provides students a wide array of services, including testing, contact tracing, health and wellness advice, access to health professionals for diagnosis, treatment and management of illness, and isolation and quarantine care and instructions. We continue to provide resident students the option to isolate and quarantine in designated on-campus housing which includes on campus services.

Taking Care of Yourself and Others

With cold, flu, and allergy season upon us, please continue to do your part. Do not let your guard down. Do not fall victim to pandemic fatigue.

This includes continuing the smart hygiene habits that keep each of us safe. This includes staying home when sick – COVID or not. The CDC provides a good reminder at Stay Home When You Are Sick.

Upcoming COVID and Flu Vaccination Clinic

The University is providing FREE COVID and flu vaccinations. The next clinic will take place on October 19 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Richard & Sheila Regan Field House.

Bring your ID, insurance card, and vaccination card, if applicable. Please be sure to schedule an appointment before arriving, as shots will be administered by appointment only, no walk-ins. There is no cost to you with most insurance.

University Vaccination Levels Exceed Revised State of New Jersey Goal Levels 

Through the Confidential Vaccine Declaration (CVD), current Seton Hall data are indicating that fall 2021 vaccination rates are near 90% for students (95% of those are fully vaccinated), 93.1% for staff and administrators (97% of those are fully vaccinated), 97% for faculty (99.6% of those are fully vaccinated), and 95% for adjunct faculty (98% of those are fully vaccinated). By comparison, 75% of New Jerseyans over the age of 16 are vaccinated.

There are numerous benefits to getting vaccinated.

We are providing free masks at the following additional location: 

  • Housing and Residence Life Central Office (2nd Floor Duffy)

We will continue to notify you as we add locations at all campuses.

In anticipation of fall break (Monday-Tuesday, October 11 & 12) we remind students who plan to travel home they can get tested before leaving campus by contacting Health Services at (973) 761-9175.

On campus or off, remember that hand washing, social distancing, and mask wearing are proven actions to keeping yourself and those around you safe. We are particularly grateful to our students, faculty, and staff for doing their part; through their efforts, we have a highly vaccinated University community.
