Updates for the Spring Semester
Due to the current rise of COVID-19 cases, Gordon is expanding protocols for the spring semester, including increased testing requirements, a remote start of classes and additional opportunities for the community to receive vaccines and boosters. As always, our goal is to remain living and learning together in community this spring, and enhanced protocols will allow us to do that in a safe way.
*Faculty and staff may fulfill this requirement at the on-campus PCR Testing Center immediately upon returning to campus in January. Students who are unable to get a PCR test at home prior to coming to Gordon may also use the on-campus PCR Testing Center but must quarantine in their room until they receive the negative test results. See safety protocols for details.
Testing will be offered during the following dates and times, except when the College is closed (holidays, snow days, etc.). Testing is in the Lewis Lobby (first come, first served) and is only available for Gordon faculty, staff and students.
Monday–Thursday: 11:30 a.m.–6 p.m.
Friday: 11:30 a.m.–5 p.m.
Saturday: 11 a.m.–1 p.m.
Note: If you use an off-campus COVID-19 testing provider, you must submit an "off-campus proof of testing" form each time. Make sure the test is a lab-based PCR test (not a rapid antigen or home test).
In partnership with Conley's Drugstore in Ipswich, MA, Gordon will be hosting a vaccination clinic this month for Gordon students, employees and family members of employees. Details are below and pre-registration is required. Multiple types of the COVID-19 vaccine are being offered (see sign-up form for details).
