University Update

  • There was 1 new case since last week’s report.
  • As of October 13, the five-day moving average of positive cases is at .2
  • No (0%) on campus quarantine and isolation beds are occupied.
  • There is 1 individual in isolation. We continue to enlist the same comprehensive testing and contact tracing protocols that identified the rise in cases in mid-September.
  • We have 99.7% compliance with the Confidential Vaccine Declaration.

This is all good news; however, with the return from fall break, holidays, and colder weather, we remain vigilant and prepared should cases rise.

Testing Available Through Health Services

The University is following CDC and State of New Jersey testing guidance, and Health Services has an ample amount of testing supplies. Students (vaccinated and unvaccinated) may request to be tested for COVID-19 as frequently as once per week.

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 (97% of those are fully vaccinated), 92.3 % for staff and administrators (99% of those are fully vaccinated), 97% for faculty (99.6% of those are fully vaccinated), and 95% for adjunct faculty (99% of those are fully vaccinated). By comparison, approximately 75% of New Jerseyans over the age of 16 are vaccinated.

The entire campus community has a vaccination rate of 90.5% with 98% of those fully vaccinated. We are particularly grateful to our students, faculty, and staff for doing their part; through their efforts, we have a highly vaccinated University community.

There are numerous benefits to getting vaccinated.

Return from Fall Break

We remind students returning from fall break they can get tested 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.

Seton Hall Weekend

We look forward to welcoming family members and friends to campus this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday for Seton Hall Weekend. Most activities will be held outdoors on the University Green with our health and safety protocols in place.

Indoor Mask Requirement

All individuals (vaccinated and unvaccinated) are required to wear a mask at all indoor, nonresidential, on-campus University settings, except when alone or dining.

Your health and safety remain paramount in Seton Hall’s planning and actions. If you have questions, comments, or suggestions, please contact the HICT here.
