Covid Testing and Safety Protocols

The Daily Health Check is required of all faculty and staff, including on the weekends, during the semester. Also, it is strongly encouraged for those who will be working on campus two or more days each week to be tested every two weeks as part of the surveillance-testing program. 

If I’ve already been vaccinated for COVID-19, do I still need to follow Notre Dame’s health and safety protocols?

Yes, everyone, including those who have been vaccinated, must continue to follow all campus health and safety protocols, including required surveillance testing, wearing a mask, maintaining physical distance, quarantining, etc. 

According to the CDC, the bottom line is that the science is not yet certain on two important points: 1) exactly what protection the vaccines provide in real-world conditions; and 2) whether getting a COVID-19 vaccine will prevent you from spreading the virus to other people, even if you don’t get sick yourself. Until more is known, the CDC and other experts state that abiding by existing protocols is critical. The University will continue to make decisions based on science. 

The COVID-19 dashboard is back online and actively reporting information with several enhancements made during the winter break. 
Staff Prayer Line
Rev. Jim Bracke, C.S.C., staff chaplain, has initiated a prayer line to support staff working on- and off-campus. All prayer requests are confidential and only accessible to Father Jim. Please submit your request here
Have a great week!
