On-Campus Admission Visits:
Visitors who have symptoms of respiratory illness should stay home and not come to campus until they are free of fever (100.4 F or 37.8 C or greater using an oral thermometer), signs of fever, or any other related symptoms for at least 72 hours, without the use of fever-reducing or other symptom-altering medicines. In addition, visitors who have had known exposure to someone experiencing symptoms or with a confirmed case of COVID – 19, should also reschedule their visit for at least 14 days after the known exposure. All visitors are expected to follow Bethany’s social distancing and face covering guidelines.
Students, faculty, visitors, and staff are required to follow all CDC current recommendations on Social Distancing found here by maintaining six feet distance (similar to the length of a pool noodle) between individuals. In addition, students, faculty, visitors, and staff are required to follow all directional signs and instructions, including specific traffic flow and social distancing indicators.
Until further notice, face coverings or masks that cover the nose and mouth must be worn at all times when in College buildings, hallways, classrooms, indoor athletic areas, common areas of the College residence halls or outdoor common areas where social distancing is not possible. Individuals are required to wear a face covering that covers both the nose and mouth at all times when not sleeping, eating, or swimming, or seeking to communicate with the hearing impaired for which the mouth needs to be visible.
A cloth face covering should:
- Cover both the nose and mouth
- Fit snugly but comfortably against the side of the face
- Be secured with ties or ear loops
- Include multiple layers of fabric
- Allow breathing without restriction
- Be able to be laundered and machine dried without damage or change to shape
For more information on how to properly use a face covering, see our tips on how to wear a face covering.
Virtual Admission Visits and Events:
The health and safety of the Bethany community has and always will be our highest priority, and it is that commitment that guides us now as we prepare to take some significant steps to safeguard all those in our care and to slow the spread of COVID-19 across the nation. Although we have started to schedule limited campus visits, we will still be offering online visits because we do not want you to miss out on speaking with a member of our enrollment team. You can sign-up below to chat virtually with an enrollment team member about how you can make Bethany College your next home away from home. If you would like to speak to a faculty member from a particular major, we can also get that set up for you online.
