Recently Asked Questions About SU’s COVID Response
Q: In light of the emergence of the Omicron variant, is Seattle University making any changes to its COVID response efforts?
A: As has been the case since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, SU is continuing to base its decisions on the latest public health guidance. Much about the Omicron variant remains unknown at this time, but the university is closely monitoring any developments that might necessitate a change in our response to the virus. (Among many other sources of information, the CDC is providing updates such as this on Omicron.)
For the past two years, and particularly with our return to in-person instruction and operations this fall, our campus community has done an exemplary job of keeping one another healthy and safe, and our very low infection rate is proof of that. Whatever comes our way in the weeks and months ahead, the same practices we have followed thus far—getting vaccinated, wearing masks, distancing, etc.—will continue to be crucial.
Q: Should I get a booster shot?
A: Yes, as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, everyone over the age of 18 should get a COVID booster shot. Learn more at CDC.
Q: Will Seattle University require me to document that I have received a booster shot as was the case for the first dose(s) of the vaccine?
A: At this time the university is not requiring documentation of booster shots, however it is strongly recommended that those who are 18 years or older and due for a booster receive one.
