COVID-19 Info & Updates

COVID-19 Policy

  • There is no longer a requirement for students and employees to report COVID-19 infections.
  • The mandate for COVID-19 vaccinations has been suspended.

This puts the responsibility of health management more squarely on individuals. Students and staff members are advised to take necessary precautions, monitor their health and seek medical attention promptly if they begin to exhibit symptoms of illness.

The college strongly encourages students not to attend class or campus activities if they are not feeling well. Our Health and Wellness Office and Goshen Family Physicians — who are committed to providing advice, information and support when needed — are always available resources for students.

These changes are aimed at promoting a safe and healthy campus environment, and are underscored by a commitment to personal responsibility and well-being.

In the event of a significant resurgence of COVID-19 that begins to disrupt college operations, Goshen College stands ready to adapt its policies as needed.

Should you test positive for COVID-19, you should avoid coming to campus or attending class until you recover fully from your illness or 4-5 days after symptoms began and fever-free for 24 hours. Students should notify their professors about expected absences from class.

If you become concerned about COVID-19 infections, transmissions or contagion, students should contact Chad Coleman, director of campus safety, and employees should contact Marlene Penner, director of human resources. Residential students can contact the On-Call Resident Director at 574-535-7273 after hours and on weekends for additional support and guidance.
