On Thursday, August 12th, 2021, President Foster announced changes to the COVID-19 policies as students are returning to in-person instruction during the Fall 2021 Semester. The following changes were stated in her email:
Effective Monday, August 16, 2021, TCNJ requires all persons on campus, regardless of vaccination status, to wear a mask while indoors. This does not include employee use of private offices or students in their residence hall.
Any in-person mandates for one-on-one or small-group meetings, such as counseling, advising, office hours, or mentoring sessions, are hereby relaxed to allow such meetings to occur via Zoom or other medium when requested by a participant.
Classes will continue to be held in person. The Academic Affairs Readiness Task Force will provide guidance to faculty for navigating in-person instruction with masking requirements.
Effective Monday, August 30, 2021, students with an exemption and unvaccinated employees with or without an exemption who come to campus must get tested two times per week for Covid-19.
