Note about Hebrew College COVID-19 Policy
Updated March 2022
Hebrew College continues to monitor COVID-19 transmission and infections, in consultation with our medical advisors, other Jewish institutions, and local colleges and universities. As the Centers for Disease Control has eased mask recommendations for the vast majority of the country and most mask mandates have been lifted locally as well, as of Monday, March 14, students, faculty, staff, renters, and visitors at Hebrew College are not required to wear masks indoors.
While we will no longer be requiring masks, you are encouraged to continue to wear them if that feels like a safer or more comfortable choice for you. In order to maximize safety for everyone in our community, especially those who are immunocompromised or living with people at high risk, we will continue to use the various systems we have put in place for air filtration/purification and we will also take advantage of opportunities to keep windows open and to gather outdoors. We will continue to monitor Federal, State and CDC recommendations regarding masking and other protocols that may come back into play as additional information becomes available.
All students who attend classes on campus are required to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination.
