Vaccine Eligibility to Expand to Phase 1B Tiers 3 and 4 on March 31

Washington Governor Jay Inslee announced last week that the next two tiers of those eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine will become eligible on March 31. This includes:

  • People 16 years or older with 2 or more comorbidities or underlying conditions
  • All people 60 years and older
  • People, staff and volunteers in certain congregate living settings: correctional facilities; groups homes for people with disabilities; settings where people experiencing homelessness live or access services
  • High-risk critical workers in certain congregate settings: restaurants, food services, construction and manufacturing

The governor also extended the state’s eviction moratorium through June 30 and announced that visitation at long-term care facilities and nursing homes may resume.

Voluntary Vaccination Registration

Thank you to those who have voluntarily shared that they’ve been vaccinated for COVID-19 at the Safe Start Health Check site. Those who have been vaccinated but have yet to register are encouraged to complete this form. By providing this information voluntarily, you will help the university to continue effective contact tracing and support proactive measures in alignment with public health protocol.

As vaccinations continue, let's all continue to keep one another healthy and safe by wearing masks, maintaining physical distancing and avoiding large crowds.

COVID Data Tracker

Looking for up-to-date information on COVID-19 vaccinations, infection rates and more? The CDC’s COVID Data Tracker provides an integrated, county view of key data for monitoring the pandemic in the U.S.

Caring for Our Students

While our campus community is doing a good job of staying healthy and safe while keeping others in mind, the need for some to quarantine or isolate is unavoidable given the scale of this pandemic. Seattle University is committed to supporting students who temporarily go into quarantine and isolation. One way is by making sure they have essentials such as assorted food and drinks, personal health information and mental health resources.
