Are masks required to be worn on campus?

Faculty, staff, students and contractors who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 are not required to wear a mask on campus. Those who are not fully vaccinated are required to wear a mask indoors in public spaces and when in the presence of others with whom they don’t share a living space.

Until Aug. 1, all visitors, regardless of vaccination status, are required to wear a mask when indoors on campus. After that date, fully vaccinated visitors are no longer required to wear a mask.

Members of our community who choose to continue to wear a mask will be supported in this choice. KN95 masks are available to those who have a health concern; please email covid@carleton.edu to request a mask.

Are visitors allowed on campus?

Most campus buildings remain accessible only by OneCard until Aug. 1. Visitors are permitted inside campus buildings during this time so long as they are masked and accompanied by an employee or student.

Visitors will be welcomed to campus during the 2021-22 academic year, including for move-in day, New Student Week, and Family Weekend. Public audiences will be allowed for events held on Aug. 1 or later. Those who are unvaccinated are asked to wear a mask when indoors, except while eating or drinking.

Is the Office of Admissions offering in-person visits and campus tours for prospective students and their families?

Yes. Please visit the Admissions website for details. Pre-registration is required for in-person events.  

Are campus buildings and resources like the Rec Center and Gould Library open to emeriti faculty and retired staff?

Retirees may regain access to campus by reporting full vaccination to the College.

How should I report my vaccination to Carleton?

Please complete the Covid Vaccine Documentation form to inform the College of your vaccination. You will be asked to provide proof of vaccination after completing the form. All students, faculty, staff and regular contractors are required to be vaccinated against COVID-19 in order to live, learn or work at Carleton.

I live or work on campus. What should I do if I suspect I have COVID-19?

You should remain at home and seek a test from a retail or health care provider, even if you are fully vaccinated. You may also pick up a Vault test from Security Services. Even if you don’t have COVID-19, you should stay home if you aren’t feeling well.

Where can I find resources for employees working remotely?

Remote work support resources are available on the Human Resources and Information Technology Services websites.
