We strongly encourage COVID-19 vaccines for all students who are eligible. For reference, the latest vaccination guidance from the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) can be found here
Vaccinations are a key mitigation measure for our School. They are beneficial for students’ health, mitigate the risk of potential interruptions to students’ in-person learning, and help ensure we have as “normal” a school year as possible despite the ongoing pandemic.
- For example, there are different quarantine requirements for vaccinated versus unvaccinated individuals who are exposed to COVID-19. Vaccinated individuals who are exposed to COVID-19 but asymptomatic do not need to quarantine and, instead, can remain in school.
- Please know that unvaccinated students may be subject to additional health and safety protocols (e.g., testing or masking in situations where masking is optional for vaccinated individuals), in accordance with public health guidance and recommendations from medical experts.
To ensure we can effectively monitor vaccination levels and mitigate public health risks for our school community, all students must confirm their vaccination status (i.e., provide proof of vaccination or share intention to vaccinate or not vaccinate when eligible) via the Magnus Health online portal.
As of August 1, 2021, Baldwin is requiring all faculty and staff to be vaccinated against COVID-19.
