Currently, Bennington College asks that our guests be up to date on their COVID vaccinations. As per CDC guidelines, this means that for those under the age of 50 you have received all doses in the primary series of an approved vaccine, as well as one booster dose. For those over the age of 50, up to date is when you have received all doses in the primary series of an approved vaccine, as well as two booster doses.
We also ask that visitors who are experiencing COVID-like symptoms refrain from coming on campus.
We are currently a “mask friendly” campus. Masks are welcome and encouraged for anyone who wishes to wear one, but are no longer required (unless you are confirmed close contact). If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at 802-440-4312.
