Dear Molloy Community,

We hope you are all doing well. Here is today's update:

This communication contains information on vaccination uploads, testing/quarantine protocols, and positive cases.  Please read this message in its entirety for details.

As you know, the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve. Rest assured that we are following guidance from New York State (NYS) and our local Department of Health (DOH).  As guidance is updated, we will adjust and communicate any changes.  Our priority remains the health and safety of everyone in our community. 

Please remember that all buildings on the Rockville Centre campus have received the Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization Air Purification System.  Information on this system is attached.

Vaccination Statistics

As of today,

  • 86.4% of students are fully vaccinated
  • 90.4% of students have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine
  • 4.5% of students have an approved exemption (3.5% religious, 1% medical)
  • 5.1% of students are not in compliance with the vaccine mandate.  We are working to address each student who is not compliant. Anyone who is not in compliance is not permitted at any Molloy location.
  • 98.5% of full-time faculty are fully vaccinated
  • 99% of full-time faculty have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine
  • 1% of full-time faculty have an approved medical exemption
  • 89% of administrators and staff are fully vaccinated

Testing/Quarantine Protocols

  • Anyone with COVID-19 symptoms should immediately quarantine and notify Health Services at (516) 323-3467 or covid19@molloy.edu. It is recommended that anyone with symptoms get tested for COVID-19.
  • As long as the individual has no known exposure, they will be permitted to return to campus after symptoms have subsided. If the individual has a known exposure, they must quarantine and notify Health Services.
  • Anyone identified by the positive person as a close contact (within six feet for ten minutes or more) will be notified of their exposure by Health Services.  If that person is not vaccinated, they will need to quarantine.
  • If the positive person is unable to identify any close contacts, Health Services will notify the entire class or area.  Those who are fully vaccinated will not have to quarantine unless they have symptoms consistent with COVID-19.
  • Anyone who has been notified of an exposure, should monitor for COVID-19 symptoms daily for fourteen days following their exposure.
  • Anyone who is in quarantine or isolation will need to upload to the Molloy Health Portal a release from quarantine or isolation notice from their local DOH.  Quarantine is for those who might have been exposed to COVID-19. Isolation is for those who have been infected with COVID-19, even if they do not have symptoms.
  • Health Services will email written guidance and next steps to those who have been exposed.
  • Anyone with an approved medical or religious exemption, or temporary waiver, is required to test weekly for COVID-19.  Testing takes place outside of Health Services in the Wilbur Arts Center every Monday and Tuesday between 10am-3pm.  The test is a self-test, anterior nasal swab PCR.  Typically, results are usually given within 24 hours. If you are required to test weekly, and receive testing off site, that is acceptable as long as your test result is sent to Health Services each week via the Molloy Health Portal.

Positive Cases

As of today, there are 14 known positive cases of people who have been to a Molloy location.  If someone who tests positive lives on campus, they are isolating either at home, or at a local hotel. We will update you each week with the number of positive cases via email.

If you or someone in your household tests positive for COVID-19, please notify Health Services immediately at (516) 323-3467 or covid19@molloy.edu.

Please do your part in keeping our community safe - always wear a face covering indoors unless in a room by yourself with the door closed, and wash/disinfect your hands regularly.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Janine Biscari at (516) 323-3457 or via our email address, restart20@molloy.edu

Dear Molloy Community,

We hope you are all doing well. Here is today's update:

Molloy College has, and will continue to, exceed the standards being set forth by the CDC in keeping everyone safe and healthy and that includes air quality in all our buildings.  Although Molloy College initially met the minimum requirements for ventilation and air purification, we have upgraded ventilation beyond the minimum requirement at all Molloy locations:

  • All air conditioner units in the four off-campus houses have had the ozone-free Siemens Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization devices installed in them.
  • The systems at our other off campus locations have had the recommended MERV-13 filters installed and the fresh air intakes were increased.
  • Installation of the ozone-free Siemens Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization system was initiated on the main campus during the Fall semester; installation in every main campus building is now complete.
  • Please refer to the attached document for details of the system.  Here is an overview of the document:
    Pages 1 -2:    How it works
    Pages 3 -7:    Scientific study proving its effectiveness against SARS-CoV-2     
    Page 8:          Advantages of needlepoint bipolar ionization over UV-C     
    Pages 9-12:  Other organizations where it has been installed
  • Here is a podcast that President Lentini participated in that addresses the system.  This system for the main campus was made possible by funds received from the Town of Hempstead.

Dear Molloy Community,

We hope you are all doing well. Here is today's update:

Privacy/Confidentiality of uploading proof of vaccination through Molloy's Health Portal.

The College is committed to maintaining the privacy of its employees and complying with all applicable laws regarding the storage and disclosure of medical information. Both federal law and state guidanceare clear that employers may require employees to submit proof of full vaccination status. As a preliminary matter, the federal law governing the privacy of vaccine information is the ADA, not HIPAA. While vaccination information is "Protected Health Information (PHI)," Molloy is not a covered entity; therefore, HIPAA is not applicable. Despite that, the Molloy health portal software is fully HIPAA complaint.

Documentation of vaccination is NOT a "disability-related inquiry" or a "medical examination" under the ADA (EEOC question K.9.); however, it is considered "confidential medical information." As such, Molloy is required to store it confidentially and separately from the employee's personnel files (EEOC question K.4.). Molloy's health portal satisfies this standard.

The only individuals with access to Molloy's health portal are employees of the Health Services Office as well as the Senior Director of Institutional Effectiveness for the sole purpose of running reports.

Information is ONLY shared outside of the Health Services Office on a strict need-to-know basis.

As a reminder, the only information that should be uploaded to the health portal is an image of the vaccination card.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Janine Biscari at (516) 323-3457 or via our email address, restart20@molloy.edu

Dear Molloy Community,

We are pleased to share the following updates from CICU, as a result of the amended NYS guidance.

Most State Restrictions Lifted, including Higher Education:

Governor Cuomo announced on June 15th that because the State has hit the goal of having 70 percent of adults vaccinated against COVID-19, most pandemic restrictions would be lifted, effective immediately. The State’s guidance for higher education has been moved to the “archived guidance” section of their website and is now described as “no longer mandatory.” (Note that campus health centers and other medical facilities are exceptions to this rollback, restrictions are still in place for healthcare settings).

Below are some immediate changes to all Molloy locations, effective today, June 17th:

  • Social distancing is not required at any Molloy location.
  • Masks are not required at Molloy locations for those who have submitted proof of vaccination to the Molloy Health Portal; anyone who has not submitted proof of vaccination is still required to wear a mask indoors at any Molloy location. If you have submitted your proof of vaccination to the Molloy Health Portal, you may choose to continue wearing a mask, if so desired.
  • Offices and research labs can operate at full density.
  • Health screenings are no longer required for anyone on campus.
  • The daily symptom questionnaire no longer needs to be completed.
  • There is no Covid-related limit to Molloy event capacities.
  • Dining facilities can resume normal density and hours of operation.
  • Gyms can operate without restrictions – masks must be worn for anyone who has not uploaded their proof of vaccination to the Molloy Health Portal.
  • Monthly calendars are no longer required for employees. Appointments are not required to come to a Molloy location.

All Vice Presidents should work within their departments to safely bring back as many employees as possible to Molloy locations by July 6th.

Please note that our off-campus locations may have their own rules in place and anyone who enters is expected to follow those rules.

The threshold for switching a campus to remote learning outlined in this supplemental guidance is also rolled back.

Please remember:

If you are not feeling well, please do not come to any Molloy location. Please remember to continue to maintain regular handwashing and hygiene practices.

If you or someone in your household test positive for COVID-19, please notify Health Services at covid19@molloy.edu.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Janine Biscari at (516) 323-3457 or via our email address, restart20@molloy.edu

Dear Molloy Community,

We hope you are all doing well. Here is today’s update:

In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the College is continuing to evaluate its plans for the Fall 2021 semester. Continued progress in vaccinations will, hopefully, provide the College greater confidence in easing restrictions for masking and social distancing on campus.

Recently, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued updated Guidance for Institutions of Higher Education (IHEs) regarding recommended practices and policies for vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals. This newly released guidance makes it more important than ever for Molloy to obtain accurate information about vaccination rates in order to make informed decisions about in-person campus activity and safety.

At this time, please note that all current mask and social distancing requirements remain in place until further notice. As stated in previous correspondence, individuals who are fully vaccinated no longer need to wear a mask or maintain social distance of six feet when indoors or outdoors at any Molloy location as long as they have submitted proof of vaccination to the Molloy Health Portal. Fully vaccinated individuals with immunocompromising conditions should consult with their healthcare provider first under all circumstances.

Beginning June 28, 2021, all employees who have been fully vaccinated with an authorized vaccine are required to upload their proof of vaccination using the Molloy Health Portal. Molloy strongly urges all faculty and staff to get vaccinated as soon as they can. A decision regarding additional vaccination requirements for employees, if any, will be forthcoming.

To upload proof of vaccination, please access the Molloy Health Portal:

  • Enter your Molloy user ID and password (same as your Molloy email),
  • Click on the Forms tab at top of page,
  • Click on COVID-19 Immunization History and input your vaccine dates,

Dear Molloy Community,

We hope you are all doing well. Here is today’s update:

In order to not wear a mask at Molloy locations, you must submit proof of vaccination to the Molloy Health Portal (fill in the dates of your vaccination and upload your vaccine card). Please do not share or send any other medical documentation through the portal. If you are coming to a Molloy location, you are permitted to not wear a mask as long as your proof of vaccination has been uploaded.

Please note the Manhattan Center still requires masks in public spaces as per the Management Company. Everyone who enters the Manhattan Center is expected to comply with this requirement.

Vice Presidents will be receiving names of employees from their departments that have uploaded their vaccine information. The information provided will be used to maintain the safety of the Molloy community, prevent and respond to the presence of COVID-19 on campus, and to comply with federal, state, local and College public health guidelines. The information will be maintained confidentially and in accordance with all applicable laws and public health regulations.

Dear Molloy Community,

We hope you are all doing well. Here is today’s update:

As we phase-in employees returning to Molloy locations over the upcoming months, health and safety remain a top priority. The task force continues to monitor best practice and evaluate protocols that enhance safety.

Fully vaccinated people, defined as two or more weeks after receiving the second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine or the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine, no longer need to wear a mask or maintain social distance of six feet, indoors or outdoors at any Molloy location as long as proof of vaccination has been uploaded into Pyramed.

    • Molloy students and employees must submit proof of vaccination to the Health Services Office via Pyramed. Individuals who have submitted proof may continue to wear a mask if they choose to do so. Please be respectful of those who choose to wear a mask.

    • Fully vaccinated individuals with immunocompromising conditions should consult with their healthcare provider first under all circumstances.

    • Unvaccinated individuals must continue to wear face coverings at all times when indoors as well as when outdoors and unable to maintain social distance of at least six feet. An unvaccinated individual (or an individual who has been fully vaccinated but has not submitted proof of vaccination through Pyramed) who violates this policy will be subject to discipline consistent with the applicable policy and/or College handbook.

Dear Molloy Community,

We hope you are all doing well. Here is a new update:

Beginning June 2nd, fully vaccinated people, defined as two or more weeks after receiving the second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine or the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine, no longer need to wear a mask or maintain social distance of six feet, when you are outdoors at any Molloy location.

Please note that this applies to outdoor settings, only. Please be respectful of those who choose to wear a mask outdoors. If you are not vaccinated, you must continue to wear a mask when outdoors and within six feet of someone. 

Molloy's current requirements for indoor mask wearing still applyYou must continue to wear a mask indoors unless alone in a private space (such as an office or a study room) with the door closed, regardless of whether you are vaccinated. We are evaluating our current mask requirements and will share an update soon. 

Fully vaccinated individuals with immunocompromising conditions should consult with their healthcare provider first under all circumstances. 

It is critical for the College to obtain information about vaccination rates in order to make informed decisions about in-person campus activity, COVID-19 testing, quarantine and screening requirements, masking and social distancing, and how to reduce transmission of COVID-19 in the campus community.

Dear Molloy Community,

We hope you are all doing well. Here are today's updates:

Travel Guidance:

New York State (NYS) recently updated its travel guidance and quarantine is no longer required for domestic or international travel. As a result, Molloy will no longer require its students and employees to complete the travel screening form.

All international and domestic travelers must still complete NY's Traveler Health Form unless the traveler had left NY for less than 24 hours or is coming to NY from a contiguous state (i.e., PA, NJ, CT, MA and VT). NYS still highly recommends quarantine for all travelers who are not fully vaccinated or have not recovered from laboratory confirmed COVID-19 during the previous three (3) months.

Dear Molloy Community,

We hope you are all doing well. Here is today’s update:

Travel Guidance Updated: 

The state's guidance for travelers was updated on April 10 to clarify several points. International and domestic travelers are not required to quarantine or be tested after arriving in New York provided they are asymptomatic. However, fully vaccinated individuals who have not recovered from a COVID-19 infection within the past 3 months are  recommended to get tested 3-5 days after arrival. Unvaccinated individuals who have not recovered from a COVID-19 infection within the past 3 months are also recommended to get tested 3-5 days after arrival and to consider quarantining for 7-10 days. Unvaccinated healthcare personnel who have not recovered from COVID-19 infection within the past 3 months are required to furlough for 7 days and be tested on day 3, 4, or 5 after arrival in New York from international travel (without testing, they must furlough for 10 days). Also of note: this guidance specifies that only individuals who have received one of the vaccines approved by the FDA (Moderna, Pfizer, Janssen/Johnson & Johnson) are considered "fully vaccinated." This excludes individuals who received any other vaccine available outside the U.S.

Please remember to complete the Molloy travel form if you are traveling internationally.

Free Crisis Counseling Services Available: 

NY Project Hope is a FEMA-funded program providing free, confidential crisis counseling in response to the pandemic. Crisis counselors who can also connect callers with other resources staff their emotional support hotline. For more information, go to  https://nyprojecthope.org.

Health Commissioner Statement on Johnson & Johnson Vaccine: 

New York Health Commissioner Dr. Howard Zucker issued a brief statement Tuesday addressing the state's decision to pause use of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine in accordance with the federal government's decision. Click here to read the full statement.

Dear Molloy Community,

We hope you are all doing well. Here are today's updates:

Domestic Travel Quarantine Ends April 1: The Governor announced that beginning April 1st, travelers to New York from all other US states or territories will not be required to quarantine upon arrival to New York, irrespective of vaccination status. The Department of Health still recommends quarantine as an added precaution. Travelers must still complete the state’s Traveler Health Form and take other precautions, including social distancing, avoiding gatherings, and wearing masks. This only applies to those travelling domestically.

International travelers are still subject to CDC guidance requiring a negative test result prior to boarding a flight to the United States and are still required to quarantine upon arrival to New York for 10 days (with no test) or 7 days (with a negative test 3-5 days after arrival). Anyone traveling internationally must also complete Molloy’s travel screening form after April 1st. Only those travelling outside of the United States will need to complete this form as of April 1st.

If you plan to travel during the Easter break, please review some important safety tips from the CDC here.

Dear Molloy Community,

We hope you are all doing well. Here are additional updates from CICU:

Vaccine Eligibility Age Lowers Tomorrow: Today Governor Cuomo announced that beginning tomorrow (March 23) individuals age 50 and over will be eligible for vaccination. That update will be reflected on the state’s appointment scheduling tool, available here.

Pharmacies Can Vaccinate People with Comorbidities: The state has expanded the list of groups that pharmacies are eligible to vaccinate to include people with comorbidities in addition to those eligible because of their age and teachers. College faculty and staff are not eligible to be vaccinated at pharmacies (unless they also qualify based on age or health condition); the expansion to include teachers was based on a federal mandate specific to P-12 teachers.

State Reviewing CDC’s Updates to Classroom Guidance: Last week the CDC updated its guidance for P-12 classrooms to allow students who are masked to be seated at desks 3 feet part, rather than the 6 feet of distance originally required. The CDC has not made a similar update to its guidance for higher education. The state DOH is reviewing the CDC’s new guidance; we will keep you updated if any New York policies change.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Janine Biscari at (516) 323-3457 or via our email address, restart20@molloy.edu.

 

Dear Molloy Community,

  • Resident students are permitted to visit other residence halls in common spaces only.
  • If you are traveling, please remember to complete this form.

CDC Recommends Two Masks:

This week the CDC also updated its guidance on masking to prevent the spread of COVID-19, saying that wearing a cloth mask over a medical procedure mask decreased exposure to potentially infectious aerosols by 95 percent in lab tests. Click here to reach the CDC's research. 

New York will follow updated CDC quarantine guidelines for fully vaccinated individuals:

Yesterday, the CDC announced that individuals who have received both vaccine doses, and at least two weeks have passed since the second dose, are no longer required to quarantine if they are exposed to someone who is infected with the virus. New York is updating its guidance to follow the CDC. Everyone, including those who have been fully vaccinated, should continue to wear masks and social distance.

  3. All employees and visitors must have their temperature taken at a temperature kiosk upon arrival each day and students living on campus must utilize the temperature kiosk in their residence hall twice daily.

We hope you are all doing well. Here is today's update:

Vaccine Update

Please note that Molloy is not a vaccination site at this time.  If that changes, we will let you know.

We received the below information from CICU (Council for Independent Colleges and Universities) and will continue to keep you updated as we receive more details:

  1. The supply of vaccine the state is currently receiving from the federal government is not sufficient to vaccinate all eligible Phase 1A and 1B persons at once. As a result, the state is prioritizing vaccination of certain groups within eligible Phase 1B groups. If the state is able to secure an increased vaccine allocation from the federal government, Phase 1B vaccine distribution will be adjusted accordingly.
  2. Higher education faculty and staff will be included in Phase 1B but not immediately. Educators and staff at the P-12 level are being given first priority and the Governor's office says higher education faculty/staff will be made eligible in the coming weeks.
  3. Higher education faculty and staff are being considered "essential workers" not "education workers" by the state and additional categories of essential workers will continue to be added to the Phase 1B eligibility over the coming weeks.
  4. That means that higher education faculty/staff are not eligible to begin making reservations to be vaccinated on Monday, 1/11, except for those who are 75 years or older.
  5. The other categories of campus faculty/staff/students that we have previously confirmed to be eligible to be vaccinated remain eligible (student health employees in patient-facing roles, employees administering COVID-19 tests, students on clinical rotations with patient-facing roles, and anyone who volunteers to administer COVID-19 vaccines). 
  6. In addition, student teachers working in P-12 schools during the spring semester are eligible to be vaccinated beginning Monday, 1/11.
  7. Our understanding is that those who are currently eligible should complete this form to make a reservation to be vaccinated.

While many new populations become eligible to be vaccinated today and many new vaccine distribution sites are slated to open including pharmacies, doctors' offices, and the Javits Center, the supply of vaccine the state is receiving from the federal government is not increasing. With more than 4.2 million people eligible to be vaccinated in Phases 1A and 1B, current estimates are that it will take 14 weeks to vaccinate everyone in those phases, including higher education faculty/staff, if the supply of vaccine does not increase. This situation continues to change rapidly; we will keep you updated as it develops.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Janine Biscari at (516) 323-3457 or via our email address, restart20@molloy.edu.

Our goal continues to be keeping our community safe and informed. Stay connected. Stay calm. Be well. Know we are here for you.

Sincerely,

The Coronavirus Task Force


We hope you are all doing well. Here is today's update:

Please remember to complete the travel screening form if you have travelled outside of NYS to a non-contiguous location.

Current Vaccine Eligibility: We have received confirmation from the Department of Health that a number of groups on our campuses are currently eligible to be vaccinated. Those groups are:

  1. Campus health employees with patient-facing roles (including clinicians, administrative staff, and any others who interact with patients in person)
  2. Any campus staff who administer COVID-19 tests (those who actually do swabs for sample collection)
  3. Students on clinical rotations who have patient-facing roles
  4. Any campus staff/student volunteer who administers COVID-19 vaccines (those actually doing the injections, not solely in administrative roles)

To check eligibility and find a vaccine distribution site, use this form.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Janine Biscari at (516) 323-3457 or via our email address, restart20@molloy.edu.

Happy New Year, Molloy Community,

Please note that the physical Molloy locations remain closed at this time and buildings are locked, with the exception of 30 Hempstead Avenue, which is open for Intersession classes.  All other buildings cannot be accessed at this time unless there is an approved appointment to be there.

Please remember that if you have traveled outside of New York, you MUST complete the travel form here.

If you traveled to a non-contiguous state, or another country, you will need to provide two negative test results to Health Services in order to be able to return to a Molloy location.  Additional information on this can be found here.

Also, on December 26, 2020, the New York State Department of Health updated its mandatory quarantine requirements to align with CDC guidelines. They have shortened the quarantine period for asymptomatic individuals from 14 days to 10 days. It is important to be aware of a few details:

  • This shortened quarantine period applies to (i) those asymptomatic individuals who have been exposed to COVID-19 and (ii) those asymptomatic individuals who have traveled to a non-border state or CDC level 2 or higher country. It does NOT apply to those who have tested positive.
  • As long as the individual does not develop symptoms, they may end quarantine after 10 days; however, they still must monitor their symptoms through day 14. If symptoms develop during that time, they must isolate and contact their medical provider or their local DOH and Health Services at COVID19@molloy.edu.

For up-to-date information on the number of cases at Molloy, please utilize the New York State Dashboard. You may also visit our website for COVID-19 updates.

December 18, 2020: Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update


Dear Molloy Community,

Please see below information regarding the COVID vaccine.

  1. New York launched a new website about the COVID-19 vaccine with everything you need to know. It provides New Yorkers with a one-stop location for accurate and up to date information on the vaccine, safety, distribution priorities and more. On the site, New Yorkers can find general information about the vaccine, a detailed Frequently Asked Questions section that provides facts about the vaccine's safety and efficacy, and other questions you may have.

  2. The State has identified Regional Vaccination Hubs to develop vaccination networks ahead of Phase 2. These hubs will be led by local hospital systems and will work with community leaders to develop vaccination networks, which will guide vaccination administration for the second phase. Long Island’s hospital partner is Northwell Health. NYC’s hospital partner is Greater New York Hospital Association. Under the state's plan, the second phase of administration will focus on essential workers and individuals in the general public who are most at risk.

  3. Vaccinating Students, Faculty, Staff: In conversations with the NYS Department of Health over the past few weeks, the Council for Independent Colleges and Universities has asked for their assessment of where students, faculty, and staff will fall in the vaccination priority list and have asked that they consider several sub-groups that may need to be further prioritized. We will share details on this as soon as we receive them.

  4. Cost of Vaccination: On December 16th, the Governor said that no one in New York will be charged for the COVID-19 vaccination. To that end, the state Department of Financial Services has issued a directive to insurers requiring that they cover any cost associated with vaccinations.

For up-to-date information on the number of cases at Molloy, please utilize the New York State Dashboard. You may also visit our website for COVID-19 updates.

Appointments must be made in advance. Once it is within 24 hours of the requested appointment time you will not be able to submit a request. You must also complete the COVID-19 health questionnaire.  It must be filled out and submitted the same day and each day you have been approved to come to campus. It cannot be completed on an earlier day.

November 18, 2020: Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update


Dear Molloy Community,

We hope you are all doing well. Here is today's update:

Thanksgiving Holiday:

As we prepare for the Thanksgiving holiday, we want to share some information related to travel, taken from the American College Health Association (ACHA). If you MUST travel during the holiday, please be safe.   

Travel Advice: Reduce the number of stops on the trip. Take a direct flight if possible, and if driving, pack food/snacks for the car trip.  

• Delay travel if sick or exposed. Anyone feeling ill, recently diagnosed with COVID-19 (within 10 days), or exposed to someone with COVID-19 (within 14 days) should self-isolate and delay travel. Students and employees should follow guidance from their health care provider regarding when recommended isolation/quarantine periods are complete and travel can be resumed.
• Take safety precautions during travel, especially if using public transportation. Wear a face covering at all times and consider also wearing a face shield. Stay at least 6 feet away from other people; if not possible on public transportation, sit as far away from other passengers as possible. Carry and use hand sanitizer (with at least 60% alcohol) frequently. 
• Use a disinfecting/sanitizing wipe to clean any touchable surfaces in the vehicle in which you are traveling. This includes planes, trains, and other forms of transportation. 
• Re-check for any requirements or restrictions at your travel destination. 
• The least risky option is private transportation by yourself or your family members. If in a car with others outside the household, wear a mask and sit in the back seat if someone else is driving. If weather conditions permit, open the windows. 

For up to date information on the number of cases at Molloy, please utilize the New York State Dashboard.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Janine Biscari at (516) 323-3457 or via our email address, restart20@molloy.edu.

Dear Molloy Community,

We hope you are all doing well. Here is today's update:

Spring Plan:

Attached is the Spring 2021 plan. This will also be posted on our website within the week for your convenience. Please let us know if you have any questions. Some of the highlights of the plan include:

• The Monday-Thursday of Spring Break have been removed in an effort to minimize travel. This is a consistent practice with colleges in our area and across the country aimed at stopping the spread of COVID-19. Please refer to our revised Spring calendar for more information.
• The library will be physically open on a modified schedule. Students will be able to access the library in person and virtually.
• Currently, there are over 80 new housing applicants for the Spring semester. Anticipated occupancy is around 210 people. Single and double rooms will be available. Triple rooms will not be available.
• We anticipate 30% in-person instruction vs. 24% last semester.
• Athletics is planning for a Spring season and is waiting on final guidance from the NCAA and the East Coast Conference as well as the final testing regimen details for our athletes.
• The installation of needlepoint bipolar ionization systems throughout the RVC campus (excluding Kellenberg Hall) will continue.
• There is a plan to transition the daily symptom questionnaire to app format for Spring 2021.

Holiday Season Notification:

As we enter the Holiday season and prepare to go remote, Health Services will still need to be notified of any positive COVID-19 cases and exposures after November 24. Information regarding positive cases and exposures can be e-mailed to Health Services at COVID19@molloy.edu. Any information shared should include the individual’s name, ID number and the best phone number that they can be contacted.

You can also call Health Services at 516-323-3467. If the phone is not answered when you call, please leave a voicemail with your name and phone number.

Travel Restrictions Reminder:

As a reminder, Governor Cuomo announced a significant and welcomed change to New York State's travel advisory policy: effective November 4, 2020, travelers to New York will not be required to quarantine for 14 days* provided they meet certain COVID-19 testing conditions. While this is a welcome change to the previous 14-day quarantine model, every student and employee must fill out the travel questionnaire before leaving or upon returning to New York State unless traveling to a state that borders New York.

*The new policy allows travelers to avoid a 14-day quarantine if they meet conditions 1-3 below:

1. Have proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken no more than 3 days before arrival in New York.
2. Quarantine for three days upon arrival in New York; and
3. On the fourth day in New York, get re-tested for COVID-19. If both tests are negative, the traveler can cease quarantine. If either test is positive, they must isolate.
4. Additionally,

• Those coming from non-border states who do not follow the above testing regimen would be required to quarantine for 14 days.
• Travelers who were only out of state for less than 24 hours do not need to quarantine but must get a test on Day Four of their arrival back in New York.
• Those traveling to and from New York’s border states, i.e., New Jersey, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, and Vermont, are not subject to testing or quarantine.

New York State Dashboard:

We will continue to keep you up to date as the semester progresses and ask that you continue to follow safety precautions and view the NYS Dashboard daily for the most up-to-date information on COVID-19 related cases. Please know that these numbers fluctuate based on when the cases are reported to when they are no longer active. We continue to take every precaution to ensure everyone’s safety and thank you for all you continue to do to keep us safe by following the safety protocols we have put in place.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Janine Biscari at (516) 323-3457 or via our email address, restart20@molloy.edu.

October 29, 2020: Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update


Dear Molloy Community,

We hope you are all doing well. Here are today's updates:

Many of you may have seen the media coverage in recent days about the new air purification system that Molloy is currently installing in our three residence halls and many other buildings on the Rockville Centre campus. The product is a state-of-the art system and we are pleased that Molloy is the first college on Long Island to take advantage of this new technology. After this installation is complete (in the next week or two), we will be installing the product throughout the campus. Most of the installations will be completed over the next few months.

Molloy will use CARES Act funding to support this project. The College received a grant from the Town of Hempstead in the summer. The grant reimburses Molloy for expenses that are “necessary expenditures due to the public health emergency with respect to COVID-19,” according to the CARES Act.

This latest project is one of many ways we are working to protect the Molloy community. We have been adding MERV-13 filters in our buildings and at our off-campus locations as we receive them.

The result of all of these efforts from everyone is that we have had minimal cases of COVID-19 during this semester. We want to thank everyone for your continued adherence to safety protocols as we look to the last few weeks of this semester and beyond.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Janine Biscari at (516) 323-3457 or via our email address, restart20@molloy.edu.

Our goal continues to be keeping our community safe and informed. Stay connected. Stay calm. Be well. Know we are here for you.

Dear Molloy Community,

We hope you are all doing well. Here are today's updates:

Post-Thanksgiving

The College will go fully remote beginning November 25th and will operate on a schedule similar to this past summer.  

Since the purpose of going remote as of Thanksgiving is to stop the spread of COVID-19, we will not allow studying, printing, etc. at any Molloy location. Clubs and student events will not be permitted to happen in person at any Molloy location.

If there are extenuating circumstances and a student does not have a safe space to study, etc., please contact Janine Biscari directly to make arrangements.

Please understand that:

  1. All buildings will be locked.
  2. Employees who need to work from their office will need to make an appointment and will be let into their building by a Public Safety Officer upon arrival.
  3. Any use of Molloy facilities by students for academic purposes will be possible only in situations where prior arrangements have been made by your academic program and approved by leadership. Students will be contacted directly by their program director with all pertinent information.

News from New York State

Click here for details on the metrics the State is now using to designate “micro-clusters.”

In Red zones, schools and non-essential businesses must close and non-essential gatherings are prohibited, among other restrictions. In Orange zones, schools must close but most businesses (except gyms, hair salons, personal care services, and other high-risk businesses) may open and gatherings are limited to 10 people. In Yellow zones, schools and all non-essential businesses are permitted to open and gatherings are limited to 25 people. Click here for detailed guidance on the restrictions within clusters. 

Clarification from DOH on Travel Quarantine: The Department of Health provided the following clarification on this week’s travel advisory updates impacting Connecticut, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania:

  1. As of October 20, 2020, neighboring states, Connecticut, New Jersey and Pennsylvania now meet the criteria for travel restrictions to NYS.
  2. However, due to the interconnected nature of NYS, CT, NJ, and PA – and the volume of workers that travel between states - a quarantine is not practically viable.
  3. Essential workers coming to NYS from CT, NJ, and PA do not need to submit a request for a travel exemption.
  4. No one from CT, NJ or PA has to complete the travel form.
  5. Teachers, school staff, and students from CT, NJ, and PA can go to work at/attend school in NY.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Janine Biscari at (516) 323-3457 or via our email address, restart20@molloy.edu.

October 21, 2020: Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update


Dear Molloy Community,

We hope you are all doing well.  Here are today's updates:

As a result of the long Columbus Day weekend, we are experiencing a slight uptick in the number of positive cases (7) as well as those individuals under quarantine and isolation (these numbers fluctuate often).  There have been no additional positive cases reported in the last 48 hours.  While these numbers are still relatively small, we wanted this to serve as a reminder to be vigilant in adhering to the safety protocols that have been put in place for students and employees.

Please continue to visit the NYS Dashboard for data that is reported to the State by us on a daily basis.  As a matter of clarity, please refer to the definitions, below, to help explain what you see on the dashboard:

  • Quarantine is defined as a person without symptoms who (1) has been designated as a close or proximate contact to someone known to have COVID-19; OR (2) has traveled internationally from a CDC level 2 or 3 COVID-19 related travel health notice country; OR (3) has traveled from a state impacted by the NYS Travel Advisory.
  • Isolation is defined as (1) a person who has tested positive for COVID-19; (2) a person who is suspected of having COVID-19 and awaiting test results; OR (3) a person who is ill with signs and symptoms consistent with COVID-19 disease with no alternative diagnosis.

We will continue to keep you up to date as the semester progresses and ask that you continue to follow safety precautions and view the NYS Dashboard daily for the most up-to-date information on COVID-19 related cases.  Please know that these numbers fluctuate based on when the cases are reported to when they are no longer active.  We continue to take every precaution to ensure everyone's safety and thank you for all you continue to do to keep us safe by following the safety protocols we have put in place.

October 2, 2020: Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update


Dear Molloy Community,

We hope you are all doing well.  Here are today's updates:

COVID Alert NY APP

Governor Cuomo announced yesterday that the state has launched a new free app to aid with contact tracing. The app, COVID Alert NY, was developed by Google and Apple. When it is downloaded to a user's phone, the app utilizes Bluetooth technology to track the phone's proximity to the phones of other users who have downloaded the app.  If one of those people tests positive for COVID-19, the app contacts anyone who may have been in close contact. Users receive "exposure notifications" informing they may have been in close contact with someone who tested positive for the virus and advising that they contact either their own physician or the state Department of Health. The app also provides information on quarantining and testing.

The app is free and available for both iPhone and Android. Click here for more information.  A document with additional details from the state is also attached.

Per the Governor, the app doesn't record identifying information about users.

Temperature Kiosks and COVID-19 Symptom Questionnaire:

Please note:  All daily symptom questionnaires must be submitted by 10am each day you are approved to come to campus.

In addition to wearing masks and practicing social distancing, please remember that completing the COVID-19 Symptom Questionnaire and getting your temperature taken at a temperature kiosk is part of a shared, community-wide effort at minimizing the spread of COVID-19.  Please do your part for our college community by completing the questionnaire every day you are coming to campus and getting your temperature taken at a kiosk every day upon arrival.  Building entrances are clearly marked and temperature kiosks are located just inside these entrances.  See map.

Resident students are reminded that they must have their temperature taken twice per day in their residence hall.

If you have trouble filling out the COVID-19 Symptom Questionnaire, please ensure that you are entering the correct password.  If you need to reset your password, please go to either the employee password reset page or student password reset page.  If you still have difficulty completing the form after resetting your password, you may contact Jolanta Zuar (jzuar@molloy.edu) for assistance.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Janine Biscari at (516) 323-3457 or via our email address, restart20@molloy.edu.

We hope you are all doing well.  Here are today's updates:

COVID-19 Testing

Wednesday, October 7, Baseline Health will conduct PCR Covid-19 diagnostic testing for employees and commuter students at the Molloy College Rockville Centre campus by appointment only.

  • Please use this link to make an appointment.
  • Please note that the mobile unit will be parked in front of Public Safety. 
  • This test will be processed through your insurance. While the first test for an asymptomatic individual should be fully covered, you are advised to contact your insurance carrier in advance to confirm that you will not be responsible for any fees associated with the test. It has been our experience that insurers are only covering the first surveillance test (i.e., test for asymptomatic individuals that have not had close contact with an infected person).
  • Please complete the attached forms and bring them with you to your appointment time along with a photo ID. Availability is limited so please make your appointment in advance.
      

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Janine Biscari at (516) 323-3457 or via our email address, restart20@molloy.edu.

We are taking all necessary precautions to help slow the spread of COVID-19 on our campus and in our community, in keeping with federal and state regulations. Together, we can ensure the Fall 2020 semester is safe and successful.

All resident students were required to have a negative COVID-19 test prior to their move-in date. We are speaking with another testing company regarding regular and systematic testing for residents for the remainder of the semester, and we hope to finalize that in the near future.  

Currently, Molloy has two positive cases, both students, who were tested prior to the beginning of the Fall semester.  They are currently under quarantine.  We will be providing information to our community regarding the number of COVID-19 infections via a dashboard that is being developed to keep everyone informed and up-to-date regarding possible cases.

Everyone who has a face-to-face class or is approved to work at a Molloy location, including students, faculty and staff, must go to a kiosk upon arrival each day to have their temperature read.  Additionally, everyone going to a Molloy location MUST complete the daily COVID-19 symptom questionnaire at www.molloy.edu/cq prior to arrival on campus.
