August 2023 COVID Policy Update: Vaccinations and protocol

All Bennington faculty, staff and students should follow CDC guidelines regarding COVID vaccinations and remain up to date on their boosters. However, as of August 15, 2023 the College no longer requires verification of vaccination. Bennington College reserves the right to change COVID policies at any time based on local, state, and federal recommendations. 

In the interest of the health and safety of our campus community, please continue to be mindful of COVID symptoms. The College recommends that community members follow the CDC guidelines for what to do if you were exposed to COVID as well as the CDC Guidelines for what to do if you are caring for someone who may be sick.

As always, if you are sick, please refrain from coming to work if you are an employee. If you are a student and you test positive, we ask that you isolate yourself and contact Ali Tartaglia, who will walk you through the next steps. 


The College will no longer require employees to report COVID exposures to Human Resources. The State of Vermont no longer requires the College to track and report COVID cases, which means that the College will no longer be collecting this information for the dashboard.
