Important COVID-19 Updates: Looking Ahead to Spring 2022

Dear SFC Community,

We thank you for your patience and understanding as we enter the third year of the COVID-19 pandemic. We appreciate the steps you continue to take to protect your health and the health of those around you.

We want to provide some important reminders and updates for when we return from Winter Break. We continue to monitor the public health guidance and anticipate proceeding in the Spring 2022 semester as we did in the Fall, with the continuation of in-person instruction and the resumption of our full campus life which adds to the richness of our community.


The College requires that all students, faculty and staff be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and upload proof as a condition of accessing College buildings (including the residence hall) during the 2021-2022 academic year.

Except for those with approved medical and/or religious exemptions, all other individuals intending to access campus in Spring 2022 must upload proof of full vaccination as a condition of being on campus.


The College continues to strongly encourage all SFC eligible students, faculty, and staff to receive a booster dose of the COVID-19 vaccine before returning to campus in Spring 2022 and upload proof by January 18, 2022.

Students, faculty and staff who are not eligible by January 18, 2022 are strongly encouraged to get a booster dose and upload proof as soon as they become eligible (within 7 days) as soon as they become eligible (within 7 days).
