The health and safety of our entire Wells community is our highest priority. This fall 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.

About this Site

On this website, you will find guidance on many important topics related to the College's plan for reopening the campus for the fall 2020 semester. Each of the following pages includes additional details plus a list of frequently asked questions.

What to Expect

Wells has instituted community-wide COVID-19 policies and testing protocols with a major regional health care provider, 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.
