Nichols College remains committed to providing a safe living, working and learning environment. To this end, all students, faculty, and staff are required to disclose their current vaccination status. This should be done by uploading vaccination documentation into CoVerified.
Our policies will comply with all applicable laws and are based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and local health authorities. Any changes made to this policy based on new recommendation from the CDC, health officials or the Governor will be communicated out in a timely manner.
Masks are currently required regardless of vaccination status while indoors on the Nichols College campus. Employees working alone in their own private offices, or students in their assigned rooms do not need to wear masks, but anytime someone is in public, shared spaces on campus and within 6 feet of another person, the mask needs to be on. Masks will be provided by Nichols College upon request.
