Information for Visitors

All visitors to campus, including prospective families, contractors, vendors, families of current students, families of employees, alumni, and guest speakers, will be expected to follow all COVID-19 health and safety measures.

Guidance for Fully Vaccinated Individuals

In accordance with current CDC and Commonwealth guidelines, individuals who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 may discontinue wearing face coverings and physically distancing, except when participating in an in-person event or gathering.

An individual is considered fully vaccinated:

  • 2 weeks after your second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or
  • 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine

Guidance for Unvaccinated Individuals

Individuals who are NOT fully vaccinated should continue practicing CDC-recommended COVID health and safety protocols, including:

  • Wearing a mask that covers your nose and mouth to help protect yourself and others.
  • Staying 6 feet apart from others who don’t live with you.
  • Getting a COVID-19 vaccine when it is available to you.
  • Avoiding crowds and poorly ventilated indoor spaces.
  • Washing your hands often with soap and water, and using hand sanitizer if soap and water aren’t available.

Please note that some vaccinated individuals may feel more comfortable continuing to wear a face covering. As such, mask-wearing does not necessarily indicate anything about an individual’s vaccination status.

Events and Gatherings

College-Sponsored Events and Gatherings

Westminster is concerned about the health and safety of our community and our guests. As we are unable to know the vaccination status of our guests, we are requiring everyone, regardless of vaccination status, to wear masks and to physically distance from individuals who don’t live with you when participating in a group event that includes visitors from off campus, such as Summer Information Sessions, Admissions Open Houses, Westminster Bound events, etc.

Summer Camps, Conferences, and Events Sponsored by External Organizations

All camps, conferences, and external organizations using Westminster’s campus are required to develop and submit a Health and Safety Plan that is, at minimum, consistent with the College’s COVID policies and CDC’s Guidance for Operating Youth and Summer Camps During COVID-19. External organizations should comply with their governing bodies and may implement stricter precautions.
