Vaccination, Testing and Case Management Information Report third-party test results here. Vaccination Clinics for Students and Employees University health and safety officials have collaborated with the Cabell-Huntington Health Department to make FREE COVID-19 vaccinations and booster doses available to Marshall students and employees through walk-in clinics in Cabell County. No appointments are necessary. Both Moderna and Pfizer vaccines are available. Marshall University Memorial Student Center (near bookstore entrance), Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. If you will not be in Huntington for your second dose (if required), please check with your state or local health department for scheduling assistance. You will need the vaccination card you received with your first dose. Please address any general questions about the vaccine to COVID19@marshall.edu. If you have medical or health concerns about the vaccine, please contact your personal healthcare provider. Additional information about the efficacy and safety of COVID vaccines is available on the Marshall Health website. Online Vaccination Registry Marshall University has developed an online process for students and employees to register their COVID-19 vaccination status and is requiring spring 2022 on-campus students to visit the registry to enter their information. The information in the registry will be used solely to help Marshall’s health and safety officials project future herd immunity associated with vaccine prevalence among our campus community. We know that more than 80% of Marshall’s faculty and staff are vaccinated, and we are now trying to determine what percentage of our student body has elected to receive the vaccine. Reaching a minimum vaccination rate of 70% on campus will help us significantly reduce severe illness and spread of the virus, better protect the health and safety of our university family and the Huntington community, and permit our students to engage in-person and more fully in various aspects of university life than they have since the onset of the pandemic. Please visit the online vaccination registry and enter the requested information. If you have been vaccinated, please refer to your COVID-19 vaccination card for the type of vaccine you received and the date(s) administered to enter into the registry. When you receive your second dose, if required, you should revisit the registry to update your information. Marshall University does not require the vaccine. If you have elected not to receive the vaccination or if you do not wish to disclose your vaccination status, you can indicate that choice in the registry with no consequences. Only Environmental Health and Safety, Student Health staff and IT database administrators with elevated rights will have access to individual data. The data will be made available in aggregate to members of the COVID-19 Health and Safety Task Force for the purposes of projecting, modeling and making policy recommendations. Personally identifiable information will not be accessible to members of the task force. Marshall University will continue to make safety the primary consideration in its decision-making, and to rely on the most up-to-date scientific information available to make informed decisions about its operations. Please address questions to COVID19@marshall.edu. Student and Employee Testing The university is testing ALL on-campus students at the start of the spring 2022 semester, regardless of vaccination status. The university also is conducting weekly surveillance testing of the university’s unvaccinated on-campus student and employee populations, as well as those who have elected not to disclose their vaccination status. Vaccinated students and employees who have entered their status in the university’s online vaccination registry are exempt from testing requirements unless requested as part of the start-of-the-semester protocols or contact tracing. Walk-up testing remains available. Please report third-party test results here. Case Management/Contact Tracing/Quarantining Marshall University has collaborated with the Cabell-Huntington Health Department, Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine and Marshall Health to develop appropriate protocols for case management and contact tracing for cases that may occur on campus. All contacts received by the university that indicate a potential exposure to COVID-19 are immediately traced by trained public health contact tracers from our campus, and immediate actions to isolate individuals are implemented. Marshall University has designated an on-campus isolation area for persons residing in Housing and Residence Life facilities. Students living off campus are offered on-campus isolation on a case-by-case basis. If you are exposed to COVID-19, you are not required to quarantine if you have been fully vaccinated against the disease and show no symptoms. Formal case management plans and operating procedures have been developed in consultation with the county health department. These plans detail the case management process, roles and responsibilities, contact tracing, medical support and quarantine for on-campus residents, communication protocols, and case-specific cleaning and disinfection.
