COVID-19 remains a public health concern and Gannon University continues to track is presence on our campus and in our adjacent communities.
Given all the changes in national and state protocols in recent weeks, we thought we give you an at-a-glance reminder of our protocols:
Gannon University’s Erie and Ruskin campuses are currently mask optional.
We strongly encourage vaccination for COVID-19 and the booster. We do not require the vaccine to attend or work here, but you are subject to tighter quarantines if you are not vaccinated and become exposed to COVID.
If you’ve recently received the vaccine, you can share that for your records here. Receive a recent booster? Submit it here.
We encourage anyone experiencing symptoms of or have been exposed to COVID-19 to reach out through the LiveSafe app, which is monitored by our nursing staff. They will call you and discuss next steps – if any – you might need to take.
We encourage anyone who is ill to refrain from coming to campus. Instead, reach out to our Health Center and await instructions.
We continue to test symptomatic individuals for COVID, free of charge. We also can provide testing on request if you are not symptomatic.
We continue to require isolation and quarantine, based on symptoms and vaccination status. One of our Health Center nurses will advise you on what you should do and for how long.
If you are in isolation or quarantine and live in campus housing, our Care team will coordinate meal delivery for you.
If you are in isolation or quarantine, you are eligible for remote instruction so you can stay current with coursework.
The university announced last week that it is delaying the start of in-person classes at our Erie and Ruskin campuses to Tuesday, Jan. 18. Any previously scheduled online courses will begin as planned on Monday, Jan. 10. The university has also shifted formal move-in to our residence halls by a week.
This announcement has resulted in some changes to our operations and schedule. We would like to provide this updated guide from what was previously shared in December to keep you informed of our newest framework for the upcoming spring semester.
