If You Test Positive Off-Campus

 Please email a record of your test to healthservices@holycross.edu. A photo of an at-home test is enough. You will be exempt from on-campus testing for 90 days.

Distancing

No specific physical distancing requirements apply at this time. Should conditions change during the term, this may be revised.

Masking

  • As of May 3, 2022, masks are again required indoors across campus. This temporary change is due to a sharp increase in on campus COVID cases. See here for more information.

Visitors

  • All guests and visitors to campus must be fully vaccinated.
  • See here for our full visitor policy.

COVID Cluster or Increased Cases

  • In the event of a COVID outbreak or increased cases on campus, the College will work with the Department of Public Health to determine additional steps needed to control the spread of COVID. These steps may include quarantine, isolation, increased testing, shelter in place, and changes, suspension or termination of classes and activities on campus, and housing in the residence halls. 
  • The College also reserves the right to differentiate between vaccinated students and unvaccinated students, in compliance with applicable law.
