COVID-19 Campus Updates
The education, health and well-being of the UC Clermont College community is of utmost importance to our faculty, staff and administration. In an effort to keep the UC Clermont community informed and safe, please refer to the below information and links to resources.
Faculty, staff and students can report any exposures, illness or positive tests through the UC COVID Check app or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for self-reporting. Any questions should be sent to the email@example.com.
In addition, please continue to read communications from the Provost, the UC COVID check team, and visit the UC Public Health website for updates.
In response to the continuously evolving COVID-19 developments, the university is amending its COVID-19 practices. Beginning with the 2022 summer term, the university no longer requires but strongly recommends faculty, staff and students receive COVID-19 vaccines. It is important to note that the university will continue to consult with medical and public health experts and may change its response as needed. According to the CDC, up-to-date vaccination, which includes boosters, is generally the most effective way to protect oneself and others from COVID-19.
COVID-19 vaccination is available to members of the campus community through many medical providers and pharmacies, including UC Health, HealthSource and Hamilton County Health Collaborative. If you have any questions, you can contact the COVID Check Hotline at 513-558-1773 or 513-558-1772.
