COVID-19 Information

Update: 1/05/2022


On December 27, 2021, the CDC guidelines for COVID were modified. Given what is currently known about COVID-19 and the Omicron variant, the CDC shortened the recommended time for isolation for the public. People with COVID-19 should isolate for 5 days and if they are asymptomatic or their symptoms are resolving (without fever for 24 hours), follow that by 5 days of wearing a mask when around others to minimize the risk of infecting people they encounter.


Additionally, the following serve as our current guidelines and reminders:

  • Quarantine periods will be directed by the Health Department and family physicians. When these are not aligned, the Health Department recommendations will be followed.
  • Vaccines for students, faculty, and staff are encouraged, but not required.
  • Masks are not required on campus, but usage is encouraged. Capacity limits and social distancing requirements have also been lifted. With that said, individuals should take personal responsibility for their health. If you have any combination of the following symptoms: fever, chills, cough, shortness of breath, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea, please obtain a COVID-19 test and do not come to the campus.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
  • Jackson Christian will continue to follow state and local guidance related to isolation and quarantine protocols, as well as other recommendations to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
