Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information
Students, Staff, and Faculty –
As the Fall semester approaches we wanted to share with you details about the semester related to your safety in our ongoing COVID pandemic. The University strongly recommends that all students, staff, and faculty, get vaccinated; we also recommend that you follow masking recommendations.
“COVID-19 vaccines are effective at protecting you from getting sick. Based on what we know about COVID-19 vaccines, people who have been fully vaccinated can do things that they had stopped doing because of the pandemic (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2021, July 27).”
UJ will continue to follow and share CDC guidance as the pandemic continues to evolve.
Numerous free vaccination options are available. See below for upcoming options; additional opportunities will be shared as they become available. The following clinics will also give Individuals who have received their first vaccine somewhere other than Jamestown their second vaccination shot.

o To maximize protection from the Delta variant and prevent possibly spreading it to others, wear a mask indoors in public if you are in an area of substantial or high transmission.
– Classrooms/Meeting Spaces
If a student tests positive, they will be required to follow CDC and Department of Health isolation and quarantine guidelines in collaboration with the UJ COVID Coordinator. Students who test positive may return home or to an off-campus location that the student secures. If the student cannot secure an off-campus location the University will work with the student. The University reserves the right to pass along the costs incurred due to any requirements to quarantine or isolate for those who have opted to not vaccinate.
