COVID-19 Mandatory Vaccination Policy
Marcellin College (the College) is committed to the health and safety of its staff, students and broader school community, which includes preventing the spread of diseases such as COVID-19 on campus and amongst members of the College community.
There is a high risk of COVID-19 infection in the context of a public-facing school environment which requires staff – during on campus learning – to regularly come into contact each day with a large section of the school community (including staff, students and parents), having regard to the increased rates of community transmission of the Delta variant of SARS-CoV-2, as well as the increased health risks of the virus to people who might not previously have been considered to be vulnerable.
The College will comply with the Health Directions.
This policy accordingly sets out the measures which the College is taking to ensure that staff are vaccinated in compliance with the Health Directions, and outlines the limited exemptions which are available.
