On Friday Feb 25, 2022 Ocean County College posted on it’s website that the college would be reverting back to their policy for the Fall 2021 semester which stated that “Full vaccination is strongly recommended, but not required, with the exception of students and faculty in the Nursing and Allied Health programs.” This comes as Vaccine requirements on the Federal level, State level and private sector businesses are being dropped across the country.

The Colleges mask requirements however, still remain in place. As per the website masks must be worn

● Indoors in classrooms, lecture halls, etc.

● Indoors in shared spaces (the library, conference rooms, studios, technology and science labs, computer labs, etc.).

● Indoors in the Larson Center except when eating and drinking while seated.

● Indoors in private spaces with more than one occupant (shared offices).

● Indoors in public spaces (hallways, restrooms, stairs, elevators, lounges, etc.).
