College Announces Fall 2022 COVID-19 Plan

By Alli Dayton, Managing/News Editor

In an email to the Gettysburg College community on Friday, Vice President of College Life and Dean of Students Anne Ehrlich, Provost Chris Zappe, and Executive Director of Human Resources Jen Lucas, announced Gettysburg College’s COVID-19 plan for the upcoming semester.

The College will require complete COVID-19 vaccination for all students, including booster doses if eligible. Students who wish to receive an exemption from this requirement must complete an exemption form. The College encourages employees to receive COVID-19 vaccinations but is not requiring employees to do so. 

Weekly COVID-19 testing will no longer be offered. However, students may receive a COVID-19 test at the Health Center if they have symptoms or are a close contact of someone who contracts COVID-19. 

Masks are not mandatory within any Gettysburg College spaces. Individuals who wish to continue masking are welcome to do so. 

“We will continue to actively monitor broader COVID-19 conditions and will respond accordingly to ensure the health and safety of our community,” concluded Ehrlich, Zappe, and Lucas in their email.
