Updated COVID Safety Protocols
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.
Who must wear masks?
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 will be required for faculty, students and staff who have tested positive for COVID-19 or experienced symptoms and are returning to campus five days or more after their symptoms have abated. These individuals must continue to wear a mask around others for 5 additional days.
If You Have Symptoms…
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, and individuals who test positive for COVID-19 should self-isolate for at least five days, or longer if symptoms are not improving.
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.
