Erikson continues to prioritize the health and safety of the children and families we serve, and our faculty, staff and students.
In accordance with city, state and CDC guidelines, Erikson will encourage, but not require faculty, staff and students to wear masks on campus, starting March 4, 2022.
The Center for Children and Families staff, clients and visitors will continue to be required to wear masks because it is a healthcare setting and children under 5 are not eligible for the COVID-19 vaccination.
Masks are required for faculty, students, and staff who have tested positive for COVID-19 or are returning to campus as per Erikson’s COVID protocol available to all staff and students.
Finally, faculty, staff, students and community partners should not come to campus or to in-person meetings if they have symptoms of COVID-19 or are feeling ill.
Faculty, staff and students will still be required to be fully vaccinated or follow the existing protocols to request a medical or religious exemption. This will apply to new students and staff until further notice. We are pleased to report that nearly all Erikson faculty, staff and students—more than 95 percent—are fully vaccinated.
