COVID-19 Policies

All visitors to campus, including alumni and families, must be up to date on their COVID-19 vaccinations or have a negative rapid antigen test result within 24 hours of coming to campus. The College considers individuals up to date on their COVID-19 vaccine if they have received both an initial, primary series of vaccinations AND a COVID-19 booster shot as soon as they are eligible. Children under 5 are not required to test before visiting campus. While masking is always encouraged, individuals are not required to wear masks indoors on campus, except in Lang Music Building and Lang Performing Arts Center.

All events are subject to change in order to protect the health and safety of our community. By registering for Alumni Weekend, you agree to follow Swarthmore College’s COVID-19 policies.
