COVID-19 vaccinations no longer required
With the COVID-19 national public health emergency ending on May 11, 2023, Clark will no longer require COVID vaccination for students or employees as of June 1, 2023. As we always have done, throughout the pandemic, our decisions are driven by science, available data, and guidance from health experts and governmental health agencies. Reflecting current trends and consistent with what we are hearing from other higher education institutions,
Clark will continue to urge all community members to follow CDC guidelines for COVID-19 vaccination, which recommend that everyone stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccines including booster doses. This is important for your own personal health as well as the health of our community.
We are proud and grateful for the extraordinary diligence, understanding, and compassion that the members of our community have demonstrated toward one another throughout the pandemic.
Through Commencement on May 20, COVID tests will continue to be available at the Information Desk in the Higgins University Center. Moving forward, students seeking COVID testing should consult with Clark Health Services, and faculty and staff should contact their primary care provider about testing options.
Regarding further updates
Other specific policies will be reviewed and updated in the coming months. If you are a member of the instructional staff and have immediate questions regarding instruction, do not hesitate to contact the Office of the Provost.

In addition to national and international developments related to the spread, treatment, and mitigation of COVID-19, Clark tracks local and regional COVID levels. Information about community spread is available through these online resources.
