The College’s Operations Planning Group has developed a mitigation plan that is backed by guidance from public health and infectious disease experts.
The College requires vaccination for all students and employees, with exemptions for medical or religious reasons. Learn more about Bryn Mawr College's vaccination policy. Prevention strategies include checking symptoms and staying home as needed, wearing a mask, maintaining at least six feet of distance from others, and noting any close contacts. Read more about the College's prevention strategies.
Bryn Mawr College will engage in targeted arrival testing as well as surveillance testing for unvaccinated students using individualized testing plans. The College also tests all symptomatic students, their close contacts (those who have been within 6 feet for more than 15 minutes), and the close contacts of all asymptomatic students who test positive. The College also reports on any cases among faculty and staff. The College uses both rapid result tests and PCR tests that typically return results within 48 hours. The College’s Medical Team will be closely monitoring the campus and will adapt this approach as needed.
Addressing Positive Cases
Residential students who test positive will be moved to a space designated for COVID-positive cases. They will be able to call a nurse for urgent issues at all times, and Health and Wellness Center staff will check on them via phone each day. They may also be seen in person by medical professionals as needed. All meals will be delivered from Dining Services with contactless delivery. The dorm will be cleaned professionally after use. Commuting students, faculty, and staff will isolate in their homes.
Those who test positive will share a list of any close contacts — those who have been within six feet for longer than 15 minutes — with Bryn Mawr and Montgomery County's public health officers. Any close contacts in the Bryn Mawr College community will be alerted and testing plans confirmed. Learn more about testing and quarantine.
