On Monday, Mar. 1, the campus community received an email from Damon Brown, Vice President of Student Affairs, regarding the move to Phase II of the campus visitor and guest policy.
The decision to move to Phase II was made after the campus-wide COVID-19 testing that happened Feb. 24 and 25 resulted in two positive cases.
Phase II of the visitor and guest policy states that each student may have one visitor in on-campus housing and all visitors must be current Alma College students. Visitors are required to be escorted by the host resident at all times and must wear masks.
With this update, there are still things regarding guests and visitors that are not permitted.
Outside guests and overnight guests are not allowed in college-owned housing and no social events are permitted.
Additionally, common areas in college-owned houses remain closed to guests and visitors. However, policies regarding common areas in residence halls remain the same as they were in Phase I.
Administration will continue to evaluate all COVID-19 policies on a weekly basis for the remainder of the term. The full guest and visitor policy can be found on the Return to Campus page of the Alma College website.
