The Malvern School® Strengthens Pandemic Safety Measures to Help Protect School Communities

The Malvern School now requires COVID-19 vaccination or weekly testing for all staff

Glen Mills, PA October 19, 2021 – As The Malvern School continues to prioritize the health and wellness of children, families, educators and staff, the organization is now requiring all employees to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Alternatively, employees will have the option to undergo weekly COVID testing. The policy is The Malvern School’s latest addition to a robust set of pandemic health and wellness measures.

“We have long encouraged vaccination for the health of our team members, the young children in our care who are not yet able to get vaccinated themselves and at-risk family members at home. As the Delta variant continues to spread rapidly and other variants emerge, this requirement makes The Malvern School’s commitment to the health and wellness of our school communities very clear,” says Kristen M. Waterfield, founder & CEO of The Malvern School.

The new rule is in line with President Biden’s call for private organizations with 100 or more employees to require vaccination or weekly testing and complies with New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy’s vaccine mandate for all child care workers in the state.

“If there’s one lesson that stands out from the pandemic, it’s that we all need to fight COVID together,” adds Waterfield. “We’re proud to be part of a united front supporting these measures in the early learning space with fellow members of the Early Care & Education Consortium, and we’re encouraged to see vaccine requirements being implemented across all types of organizations. The bottom line is that we need to stay vigilant and look out for one another.”
