Delaware Tech Lifts Vaccine, Masking & Testing Requirements Effective Wed, March 2
As we have done from the beginning of the pandemic, we continue to make operational decisions based on COVID data and in compliance with Governor Carney’s directives and CDC guidelines. In light of the Governor’s announcement yesterday, the recent updated CDC guidelines, and a significant decline in regional COVID rates, Delaware Tech will also remove all masking, testing, and vaccine requirements for our employees and students effective March 2. The most recent directives regarding self-screening, isolation, and quarantine remain in effect until further notice.
Even though the College is not requiring vaccinations for the general student population, a vaccination may be required by assigned clinical placement settings for nursing and allied health students into the future.
As we have said through the course of these past two years, every decision we have made has been in the best interest of our students, employees, and the entire College community. Although no longer required, vaccines, masks, and distancing remain effective health strategies to combat the spread of the virus in the months ahead.
We will continue to monitor health data and state and federal guidelines to manage the pandemic moving forward, always keeping the health and safety of our College community as our top priority.
