Consistent with federal and state laws, as well as W&J policy, students may request an exemption from the COVID-19 vaccination requirement and other immunization requirements listed in the student handbook. The exemption form can be found here: Exemption to Immunization Form and submitted to the Office of Student Life. This exemption form can also be found at MyW&J on the Student Life page under the Student Life File Finder sidebar. First year students should email the completed form to firstname.lastname@example.org, and upperclass students should email the completed form to email@example.com.
Unvaccinated students will be required to take an antigen test (three times a week), with the goal of mitigating potential spread of COVID on campus. This aligns with the NCAA requirements for testing unvaccinated student-athletes. The frequency of the antigen test provides a comparable reliability to 1 PCR test/week but with a faster test result.
Faculty and staff may request an exemption from the COVID-19 vaccination requirement by utilizing the Employee Exemption to Immunization Form and submitting to Human Resources via the Employee COVID-19 Vaccination Submission and Exemption page on My W&J. Vaccination status and any exemptions must be filed by September 29, 2021. Any individuals who are not vaccinated will be required to take an antigen test.
