Covid-19 Safety Plan Staff/Faculty
April 6, 2022
Campus Safety Precautions
Last week, the Austin Public Health department changed its COVID-19 risk-based guidelines to match information that is provided by the CDC. No longer do the guidelines follow a 1-5 stage designation, but rather a Low-Medium-High designation. Travis and surrounding counties are currently designated in the Low community level of risk. Likewise, Davidson County, TN, is also in the Low range. Below is the chart that Travis County is currently using as a guideline to the public about risk and behavior.
Austin Seminary continues to follow the guidelines from Travis County. While we are keeping an eye on the Omicron BA.2 strain and how changes in our guidelines may change with updated information, this update is to give the most up to date guidelines for our shared life at Austin Seminary.
Students, faculty, and staff can follow the above guidelines and go unmasked at this time. As a reminder, the Seminary has required a booster shot as part of its vaccine mandate. If you have not submitted a request for an exemption or your booster information, you can submit your vaccine status here.
Visitors are allowed on campus. Groups that are using meeting spaces and/or overnight accommodations, will still be required to show proof of vaccination at this time.
All spaces are open, including the McMillan fitness room. Spaces that typically have gatherings, like classrooms, have air filtration units.
