COVID-19 Testing & Health Resources for Residents Approved for Extended Late Stay

Dear Students,

As a student approved to remain in your Main Campus residence after campus moves to remote operations on November 22, you must continue to participate in weekly surveillance testing. This email provides details on how to access that testing, important updates to the College guest and event policy, how to access that testing as well as resources for staying healthy on- and off-campus. 

Surveillance Testing: November 22–January 22

Main Campus residents who are approved to stay beyond November 22 must continue to take part in weekly surveillance testing and continue to submit their Daily Health Survey for the duration of their campus stay. Surveillance testing will continue to take place in Perry Hall on Tuesdays between 9:00 AM–4:30 PM.  The state requires that any student who tests positive isolate for ten days. If you miss any of your required weekly testing, your meal plan may be interrupted. 

Guest & Residence Hall Event Policy

As a reflection of the Governor’s guidance and in order to maintain the health and wellness of our campus community, the College guest policy has been revised. Effective immediately: for the remainder of the semester and through winter break, no guests are allowed in any residence hall room. This includes individuals from your residence hall and other halls on campus. All campus events, including those hosted in residence halls, will take place virtually. We cannot emphasize enough the importance of refraining from gatherings of any size.

Not Feeling Well?

The Student Health Center will remain open and available to students by appointment through December 18. If you have symptoms of COVID-19, please isolate yourself and record your symptoms on the Daily Health Survey. The Daily Health Survey will be monitored by Student Health Staff 7 days/week from 10:00 AM–2:00 PM with the exception of November 26 (Thanksgiving Day) and December 25. Students in need of other health services may also seek consultation by appointment through December 18. Please contact the Student Health Center as needed at 802.860.2711 or

The Student Health Center will be closed December 19–January 22. If you are in need of any health services after December 18, please contact your family physician or visit one of the Urgent Care Clinics listed here. In the case of an emergency, dial 9-1-1.

Wishing you a healthy holiday,
