Our fall health guidelines have been developed in accord with the most recent guidance from the CDC and local public health officials. Our guidelines will be reviewed regularly through the semester and updated accordingly as conditions change.

Please read the attached guidelines closely for information about protocols in classrooms, around campus, and during move-in days. Highlights include:

  • We will begin the semester requiring face coverings indoors for all people, regardless of vaccination status. This is due to the current surge in cases and the fact that we will be welcoming people from many different parts of the country and the world to campus at the start of the year. We will regularly review this policy through the semester.
  • Vaccination against COVID-19 is required for all students and all employees. Those who are not able to receive the vaccine and are granted exemptions will be expected to comply with additional health measures, including participating in COVID-19 testing as requested and maintaining quarantine after travel as necessary.
  • Vaccination is expected for all campus visitors and guests.

When you have been vaccinated, please submit a copy of your vaccination record to the health team through the vaccination form.

Your care with your own health and the health of this community is part of how we love our neighbors in this season.

While implementation of a vaccine for COVID-19 has begun in the United States, public health experts warn that the next several weeks will be a particularly critical time. We already see rapidly rising transmission rates in our region and around the country, which will likely increase with anticipated holiday travel.

We are strengthening our health and wellness guidelines for the Christmas break and January term, in order to promote the health and safety of our community. These guidelines have been made in consultation with CDC advice, New Jersey state guidelines and regulations, and counsel from our local public health officials.


Princeton Seminary Health Guidelines 2020-2021

In this season of COVID-19, we are learning that there are different ways to love our neighbors. Loving our neighbors is what beats at the heart of this document. We desire to keep our community healthy and well as we begin our 2020-2021 academic year. To do this successfully we need every member of the Princeton Theological Seminary community to engage in these health guidelines so that we may create a community of care and wellness.

Our health guidelines have been created after extensive review of Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines, New Jersey State health guidelines for institutions of higher education, and best practices of sister institutions of higher education. They have been prayerfully and carefully created by a team of students and staff, as well as reviewed by public health experts. They have then been reviewed by other students and staff members. They will be revised as indicated by changes in CDC and New Jersey State guidelines.

In this season, these are our daily liturgical practices of loving our neighbors.
