Covid-19 Protocol & Precautions

Per CDC guidelines, as of now Belmont Abbey College is asking all campus visitors to wear a mask indoors in public areas, even for vaccinated individuals. The college is working with local Health Officials and will continue to monitor the situation and spread of the virus. Updates will be sent out and updated on the Homecoming 2021 page as they become available.

If spread of the virus continues to increase significantly, additional health and safety measures may be required. If transmission of the virus drops significantly or masking guidance changes, we will send out updates. We do not require proof of vaccination. Belmont Abbey College is doing everything in its power to take the proper precautions to keep students and visitors safe while also continuing forward with in person events.

We ask that if you are not feeling well to please stay home. If you have further questions about Covid-19 protocols and the college’s stance, please visit belmontabbeycollege.edu/coronavirus/.
