Return to Campus Communications

The College will continue to share details and announcements with the campus community throughout the semester. Here you will find the most recent campus communication.

  • Spring 2023 Return to Campus Information | January 11, 2023

    To the Manhattan College community,

    Happy New Year and we hope you had a safe and wonderful Christmas holiday.

    Vaccination is the most effective strategy for preventing severe disease and hospitalization from both COVID-19 and influenza.  We strongly encourage everyone to be fully up-to-date on all vaccinations for the health and safety of the community. Thank you to those who have already taken this step. 

    COVID-19 Testing- Before returning to campus

    We ask that you complete a COVID-19 home test prior to returning to campus. The NYC Department of Health is reporting several viral illnesses circulating at this time. Testing for COVID-19 for anyone experiencing symptoms continues to be part of the prevention strategy for the spread of this more serious illness for some individuals.


    The College’s current mask policy is unchanged.  Masks are not required indoors or outdoors except in classes by faculty request, in administrative offices by request, and in Health Services, though they are highly recommended for high risk individuals and required for those who have been exposed to COVID-19 or who have recently tested positive. 

    COVID-19 Illness-Positive Tests and Isolation

    Individuals who test positive for COVID-19 are required to report their illness to Health Services and upload documentation of  their positive test to the test portal. A 5 day period of off campus isolation for COVID-positive individuals continues to be required by CDC and NYS guidelines. Guidance for those students and employees who test positive for COVID is provided by Health Services. NYC DOH continues to track cases and requires the College to report cases in the community. 


    Visitors to campus will no longer be required to complete the symptom tracker before arriving on-campus.    

    Here is updated information on COVID-19 in New York City, New York State and the United States Thank you for your continued efforts in keeping our community safe.


  • Isolation Preparation for Students Spring 2023 | January 10, 2023
    Dear Jasper Community:

    We are all looking forward to a great campus experience this spring. As part of our preparations, we need to make the best choices possible to protect our community. 

    Please note that with limited exceptions, Manhattan College will not operate a COVID-19 
    isolation program for the 2023 academic year. This decision mirrors that of many other colleges and universities around the country as a result of increased access to and administration of COVID-19 vaccinations and boosters.  

    All student COVID cases should be reported to the office of Health Services (by phone or email). 
    If a medical professional directs you to isolate due to a COVID illness, you will be required to depart campus for the duration of your isolation period. The current isolation policy is a 5 day off campus isolation. It is essential that you create an off-campus COVID plan now, in connection with your family or other support systems, so that you will be prepared should you be directed to isolate. 

    Important elements to consider when developing your plan

    Where will you go to isolate? 

    How will you travel to your isolation location
    , avoiding public transportation when possible?  

    Who will you call if you need ass

    What will you need to take with you? 

    What arrangements will you need to make for food or other necessities? 

    do you want to notify about your status? 

    While we understand that isolating can be a stressful situation, we also know that planning will make this transition easier. One important resource available to members of our community requiring isolation for a positive COVID test and/or symptoms is our partnership with 
    the following two hotels:

     Springhill Suites (Tuckahoe)

    The Hyatt Place (Yonkers)
    Please mention your Jasper status for possible discounts.
     For students with questions regarding their circumstances reach out to

    When isolation is complete
     Health Services will provide guidance on your return to campus housing on Day 6. You will be advised and required to wear a mask on campus for the remaining 5 days in the classroom and in your residence hall.

    We’re working to make sure you have a great year at Manhattan College.
