COVID-19 Employee Information

We are here to help

While the world and our nation are in a better position today than earlier in the pandemic, COVID-19 remains a challenge, and health guidance and resources continue to adapt and update. As vaccination, boosters and treatments allow us to protect our University community better, St. John’s, its employees, and students can once again operate without disruption to our daily lives. To ensure our employees have the support and guidance they need to navigate COVID-19 related issues, Human Resources has consolidated information to this website.

f you test positive for COVID-19, regardless of your vaccination status, do not come to campus – fill out the Notification Form and check your St. John’s email for further instructions from Human Resources.  If you have been exposed to COVID-19 virus, fill out the Notification Form and check your email for further instructions.
