COVID-19 Protocols


Swarthmore College campus is currently open to visitors. All visitors who are 12 and older are required to be fully vaccinated. While vaccination information will not be collected, visitors may be asked to show proof of their vaccination status.

Mask Protocols

  • Based on guidance from the CDC and from Swarthmore College public health and medical experts, all individuals — regardless of vaccination status — will be required to wear masks while inside campus buildings unless you are actively eating and/or drinking.
  • When fully vaccinated speakers are speaking to a group of people indoors, they may remove their masks provided that: 
    • The audience members are masked, per Swarthmore College policy
    • The speaker is fully vaccinated
    • The speaker is able to maintain at least three feet of physical distance from the audience members. 
    • The speaker puts their mask back on when finished speaking.
  • At this time, masks are not required outdoors unless specifically noted. For instance, masks may be required outdoors during special events.
