COVID Updates

Spring 2022 Health Protocol

Effective Monday, Feb. 28, the College will implement a mask-optional policy, however a few exceptions will apply. Faculty members can continue the mask mandate in their classroom and/or lab spaces if they wish to do so. Please check with your professors for their preference.  

Certain on-campus events may also still require masks depending on size and nature of the event. This includes events where crowds are anticipated, making it difficult to physically distance. Additionally, music and performing arts productions should require masks for attendees due to the particles that can be easily spread by performers. 

Hiram College Athletics will continue to require that all spectators wear masks at indoor athletic competitions to protect our athletes and preserve the integrity of their competition season.  

The same requirements apply to the James H. Barrow Biological Field Station. 

If you test positive for COVID-19 or come into contact with someone who has COVID-19, be sure to follow the College’s guidelines in regards to quarantine time, testing and other precautions. You can find those guidelines here.

Vaccinations and Boosters

Based on emerging data that suggests the benefits of the booster vaccination differ between individuals, Hiram College will not require a booster vaccination for students, faculty, and staff. For individuals who have not previously been infected with symptomatic COVID-19, it is recommended that you receive a booster. Individuals who have previously been infected with symptomatic COVID-19 should consult with their healthcare provider.  

Hiram College will continue to require that all students, faculty, and staff become fully vaccinated against COVID-19. To be fully vaccinated, an individual must receive both doses of a two-dose primary vaccine or one dose of a single-dose vaccine. The Health Center will continue to offer the Pfizer COVID-19 primary series and booster vaccines to those who wish to receive it.

Hiram College strongly recommends that you receive a booster vaccine as soon as you are able to increase resistance to COVID-19. The Health Center has doses of the primary vaccine and booster shots available.
