In an email to the student body on Thursday, Covid-19 Resource Coordinator Mike Ranen announced that all students are expected to take an antigen test before traveling back to the College after spring break.
Some additional restrictions will be in place, as students will return to the Monday/Thursday PCR testing framework that has remained in place this semester.
According to Ranen, the results of these two PCR tests will determine the extent of Covid-19 restrictions in the following weeks.
“If our cases remain low and conditions more broadly have continued to improve, the College will likely ease more restrictions on masking and testing,” Ranen said.
This policy reflects the College’s overall goal to ease Covid-19 restrictions as cases decline nationwide. This is a more liberal approach than the College took upon students returning from winter break, which included a week-long shift to virtual classes.
