COVID-19 policies extended until Feb. 16
Despite a reduction in cases and positivity rates compared to the start of the spring semester, the College extended COVID-19 protocols in effect until Feb. 16 in order to restore the low case rate seen during Fall 2021. As a result, masks will continue to be required in all buildings, including residence halls, and eating with others will not be permitted outside the dining hall. Additionally, students are allowed to visit each other’s rooms with masks on. The no-guest policy in residential halls is set to continue but will be reconsidered later in the semester when the number of cases significantly changes.
In-person classes begin again for the spring semester after a week of virtual learning
With the beginning of the spring semester on Jan. 24, most students moved in between Jan. 20 and Jan. 23 and were required to take rapid and PCR tests two times the following week. The semester started online for the first week due to the anticipated influx of positive cases as students and faculty started coming back on campus. Students who received two negative rapid and PCR tests, following the first initial negative test, were allowed to attend in-person classes that resumed on Jan. 31.
