As you are aware, NJCU has required COVID-19 vaccinations for all employees since November 2021, subject to religious and medical exemptions.

Effective immediately and in keeping with the decision to lift the student vaccination requirement, NJCU employees are no longer required to be vaccinated as a condition of employment.

REPORTING AND CONTACT TRACING: Employees remain obligated to report a positive test to their supervisor and must continue to cooperate with University efforts in contact tracing.

MASKING: NJCU continues to be a mask-optional environment. Employees who are unvaccinated should continue to mask. Employees emerging from isolation after testing positive for COVID-19 are required to mask for five (5) days upon returning to work.

TESTING: Effective September 1, 2022, employees who are unvaccinated will no longer be required to test twice weekly in order to report for work. Regular testing remains recommended for ALL employees as a matter of personal health and to contain spread.
