Health & Safety

The College quarantine and isolation policy requires that students and employees safely return home or to other off-campus locations for the time duration required. Marist is only providing general isolation or quarantine facilities on a very limited basis.   


Students who are not fully vaccinated or who have received a medical or religious exemption must quarantine if exposed to COVID-19 and are determined to be a close contact.


In accordance with guidelines from the CDC and New York State, Marist will require a mandatory isolation period of 10 days and contact tracing to inform other community members who may have been in contact with an infected individual. These measures will ensure that everyone is properly protected and every measure is taken to prevent potential spread.

  • Any member of the Marist community who tests positive for COVID-19 will need to isolate for 10 days per College policy regardless of vaccination status.
  • Students who test positive for COVID will be contacted by Marist’s in-house contact tracing team.  It is expected that students will cooperate fully with the contact tracing team member, with the goal of identifying individuals who might have been exposed.
  • An overview of the isolation process is available here.  
  • Students who are required to isolate or quarantine are responsible for notifying Marist Health Services. Once reviewed, Marist Health Services staff will notify the Center for Advising & Academic Services (CAAS) about the students’ requirements. CAAS in turn will send an absence notification to the students’ professors. Students are required to also contact their individual professors in order to create a plan to continue their coursework during their isolation. A single point of contact to assist any student in this process is our Center for Advising & Academic Services Office, which is available at (845) 575-3500 or
