COVID-19 protocols

  • Vaccination and reporting of vaccination status is mandatory for all faculty, staff, and enrolled students, unless an exemption has been granted by Seattle U, or a student is in a fully online program and has attested that they will not be coming to campus.
  • All eligible, non-exempt students, faculty, and staff are expected to receive authorized COVID-19 vaccine booster doses. Booster doses must be registered by April 1, 2022.
  • Seattle University Curative testing kiosk is available on campus.
  • Until March 21, face coverings are required at all times while indoors on campus, regardless of vaccination status. Face coverings may be removed only when actively eating or drinking. An N95 or KN95 mask is the best defense against the Omicron variant of COVID-19. After March 21, a face covering is optional.
  • Effective March 21, students, faculty, staff and visitors will not be required to complete the Safe Start Health Check daily. The health check will continue to be available for those who are symptomatic to use as a tool to help determine whether or not to come to campus or go to class.
  • There are no physical distancing requirements in effect for those in our community who are fully vaccinated.
  • Unvaccinated individuals who have received a university exemption have been notified of additional safety requirements, including physical distancing.
  • Sanitation stations (wipes) will be located in central locations within Sullivan Hall and hand sanitizer is located at the entry doors.
  • Community members are required to self-report suspected or confirmed COVID-19 illnesses or possible COVID-19 exposure by using the Safe Start Health Check, emailing to report directly to Public Safety staff, and alerting Associate Dean Rick Bird or another trusted staff or faculty member.
  • Seattle University conducts randomized surveillance testing of students.
  • The University is closely monitoring the COVID-19 public health situation, and federal and state public health guidelines, and will update policies and procedures as necessary.
