Public Health Information

Welcome!

Rowan employees and students are encouraged to check this page frequently for all of the latest Public Health information provided by the Wellness Center, including testing, reporting COVID exposures, and vaccination/booster clinics for COVID and for the flu.

Covid Updates 

Students and Employees

Currently, our region is experiencing an increase in positive cases of COVID-19.

But the good news is that, according to data from New Jersey and the CDC, the cases are not resulting in significant increases of severe illness, death, or hospitalization in the ICU. Rowan University leaders will continue to monitor the local healthcare systems and adjust recommendations. 

As a reminder, if you are a Rowan employee and you test positive for the virus, please notify your supervisor and your close contacts and follow the CDC guidance of isolating for five days from the onset of symptoms.

Stay home if you are ill and follow your department’s illness protocols. No notification to the Wellness Center or Human Resources is required. Additionally, no contact notification form needs to be completed.

The best way to try to avoid severe sickness from COVID-19 is to get vaccinated and boosted for the virus. Boosters are available from local pharmacies and the New Jersey COVID-19 vaccination locator can be found here.

Finally, while it is your choice whether or not to wear a mask, the CDC is recommending indoor masking based on the current virus transmission data. Please continue to be respectful to those who continue wearing a mask for their safety and the protection of others.

Thanks for all that you have done—and continue to do—to keep our campuses safe.
