The health and safety of our entire Wells community is our highest priority. This year at Wells, things have been different in all areas of college life — academics, residential living, dining services, campus facilities and more. The seriousness of COVID-19 cannot be overstated, and the success of our reopening plan depends upon a shared responsibility to keep each other healthy and safe, and each of us doing our part by making good choices.

What to Expect

Wells has instituted community-wide COVID-19 policies and testing protocols for all to follow without exception. These include the following fundamental behavioral guidelines. Failure to follow protocols will be treated as a violation of the College's honor code.

  • Masks are required by everyone on campus when indoors and outdoors in the presence of others. This includes wearing masks in all classrooms.
  • Handwashing is essential to reducing the spread of the virus. Wash your hands often; do not touch your mouth or face; and carry sanitizer with you.
  • Everyone must complete a brief screening questionnaire each day.
  • Maintain social distance of at least six feet between you and others wherever possible.
