  • Updated Test Results, Vaccination Data | April 15 2021

    To the Manhattan College community,

    As a reminder, all New Yorkers age 16 and older now are eligible to be vaccinated against COVID-19. If you are an out-of-state resident student, you are considered a New Yorker.

    To schedule an appointment, you may visit New York City’s Vaccine Finder or the New York State appointment tool. You can also call the New York State COVID-19 Vaccination Hotline at 1-833-NYS-4-VAX (1-833-697-4829).

    Now that all New Yorkers 16 and older are eligible to be vaccinated, we urge everyone in the Manhattan College community to get their vaccination as soon as possible. Many in our community have already done so, which not only protects those individuals, but their families, neighbors, co-workers, classmates and friends. Getting vaccinated will also help us return to a full, in-person living and learning experience in the fall.

    The CDC has prepared documentation detailing myths and facts about these safe and effective COVID-19 vaccines. The CDC also has updated information regarding the recent recommended pause of Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen COVID-19 vaccine.

    Should you have any concerns or need more information about the COVID-19 vaccines, please feel free to contact the Office of Health Services or your own primary care doctor.

    Updated Test Results

    In the last 14 days, 1530 tests were completed on campus with 6 positive results and 108 results pending. 

    During that same time period, Health Services processed an additional 460 results from off-campus testing sites with 18 positive test results recorded for on-campus individuals. 

    During the past 14 days, the positive test average for the College is 1.3%. As a point of comparison, the seven-day positive test average for New York City was 3.4% on Tuesday, April 13.

    Since March 28, when our vaccination portal was completed, 273 employees and 183 students have uploaded verification of their complete vaccination. 

    The College is publishing weekly updates of testing, quarantine and vaccination data on this public dashboard.

    For Those Who Have Been Vaccinated

    If you have been fully vaccinated, please upload verification of your vaccination here. For the purposes of this guidance, you are considered fully vaccinated for COVID-19 at least two weeks after you have received the second dose in a 2-dose series (Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna), or at least two weeks after you have received a single-dose vaccine (Johnson & Johnson/Janssen).

    For employees who have submitted a vaccination record and have an orange pass, please contact the office of Health Services at 718-862-7217 or health.services@manhattan.edu. 

    Surveillance testing is still required of all students. Please check your COVID Compliance Status for your most updated information. 

    In addition, everyone is still required to maintain social distancing, wear masks and complete the daily symptom tracker. A formal vaccination policy for the summer and fall 2021 semester is forthcoming.

    For Those Who Have Been Vaccinated, Part 2

    If you’ve been vaccinated, let our social media team know about it!

    We're highlighting members of our community who have been vaccinated and will share photos on our website and College-wide social media platforms to share the good news. Share a photo or some words about why you’ve been vaccinated.

    Indoor Dining Capacity 

    On Monday, April 19, we are planning to increase our indoor dining capacity to 50%. Please be sure to keep following distancing signage and wash your hands before and after eating.

    If you have any questions or concerns at any time, please reply to this email or call the One Manhattan office at 718-862-6398.

    Sincerely,

    Steven Schreiner, Richard Satterlee and Tamara Britt
