Mandatory Vaccination and Testing Requirements

October 27, 2021

Proof of vaccination or regular testing effective December 10, 2021

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Cumberland College has committed to providing a safe environment for students, staff, and visitors.

To reduce transmission of COVID-19 and the highly transmissible Delta variant, Cumberland College will require all employees and learners to be fully vaccinated or provide proof of negative test results.

Effective December 10, 2021, all employees, students, board members, and visitors, including consultants, contractors, and agents must be fully vaccinated and provide proof of vaccination.  For individuals who are not vaccinated or choose not to disclose their vaccination status, evidence of a valid negative COVID-19 test result must be provided once every seven (7) days.

“Vaccination is a key element in the protection against COVID-19,” said Rebecca Cross, Manager of Safety and Institutional Development at Cumberland College.  “The science overwhelmingly indicates that vaccines are the best way to reduce the transmission and effects of COVID-19, so our college is doing whatever we can to encourage students and staff to get vaccinated.”

Employees and students will be required to complete a COVID-19 Vaccination Self-Declaration form by November 3, 2021.  “Individuals who receive a two-dose vaccine must receive the first dose by no later than October 29, and the second dose by no later than November 26, said Lynn Verklan, Vice President, Finance and Administration at Cumberland College.

“It takes a collective effort from students and staff to ensure the safety of everyone on our campuses,” said Verklan.  “Our college will continue to follow public health orders and implement additional safety protocols in an effort to make our campuses and communities as safe as possible.”

Further details about the COVID-19 Proof of Vaccination or Negative Testing policy will be communicated with students and staff.
