Campus Safety Protocols: Fall 2021
We will ask community members accessing campus or other in-person Naropa sponsored activities for Fall 2021 (August 1 through December 31) to follow these safety procedures:
- Do not come to campus or attend in-person Naropa-sponsored activities UNLESS you are fully vaccinated AND have completed the Vaccine Verification Process.
- Wear a mask on campus when indoors except when eating or drinking.
- We encourage anyone to take extra precautions such as social distancing or double masking if they feel that is best for themselves and those around them. Social distancing is no longer required and our classrooms will return to pre-COVID occupancy limits. Please be respectful of anyone who wishes to continue social distancing.
- We will not be offering Covid-19 testing on campus this fall. Regular testing is no longer required of our students residing in our resident halls or for retreat participants. Anyone who is experiencing symptoms commonly associated with Covid-19 should seek a Covid-19 test. The CDC also recommends testing 3-5 days after exposure to a confirmed case of Covid-19, even if you don’t have symptoms. Local testing locations are listed on the Boulder County Covid-19 information webpage.
- Anyone who is feeling ill with Covid-19 symptoms should stay at home and get tested.
- Student groups, events and gatherings may occur on campus without limitation in gathering size as long as they are scheduled, supervised and approved by the appropriate departments per Naropa’s existing Event Guidelines. Events and gatherings, however, are open only to vaccinated members of the Naropa community.
- Visitors and guests to Naropa, including prospective students, who need limited access to Naropa property for business purposes, are not required to provide proof of vaccination. All guests are required to wear masks indoors at all times when they are on Naropa property.
- Retreats, Intensives and Field Work will be held in-person and in accordance with the vaccination mandate policy. Alternate arrangements will be made available to students with exemptions as well, since they will be unable to attend in-person. Your faculty will make you aware of these arrangements.
- Residence halls will return to maximum occupancy this fall. Residents should work with resident hall staff to understand cleaning and disinfecting protocols within the halls.
NOTE: Safety protocols for the Spring 2022 semester will be announced by December.
