Fall 2020 Communications

Distribution: All faculty, administration, staff, and students

From: Simon G. Møller, Ph.D., Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs and Joseph E. Oliva, Esq. 
Vice President for Administration, Secretary and General Counsel

We wish all members of our university community a warm and safe welcome as we begin the new academic year. The Return to Campus Task Force has been providing updates throughout the summer about the preparations that were made for the fall semester and you will notice changes as you walk around campus. You can find more information and updates on the St. John's Reopens website.

As we start the fall 2020 semester, it is critically important for us to provide the university community with regular and timely updates about the status of any positive COVID-19 cases and our efforts to contain community spread when such cases occur. We will actively monitor all positive cases and consult with a team of internal and external public health experts experienced in evaluating and responding to these situations. We also will monitor the infection rates in the surrounding community and guidance from local and state health officials. There may be situations that arise requiring us to make temporary changes to on campus activities, close part of the campus, or temporarily close the entire campus. We will be guided by data, public health experts and the safety, health and well-being of our campus community.

On August 1, 2020, the University began to welcome back students from geographic areas that were subject to New York State quarantine mandates. These students were housed in segregated space for 14 days and tested for COVID-19. There were three students who tested positive for COVID-19 while in quarantine. These students were re-located to an isolation facility and we are happy to report that they are all doing well. They remained in isolation until they were medically cleared to return to regular campus activities. These are the only positive cases that we know about involving members of our campus community.

It is important for everyone to do their part to keep each other safe and contain the spread of COVID-19. Please make sure to undertake daily self-monitoring of any symptoms by using the St. John’s COVID-19 screening survey, maintain social distancing when on and off campus, wear a face covering, and wash your hands with soap regularly throughout the day. Thank you for your cooperation during these challenging times. We pray for God’s blessing and protection for you and your families.
