 To continue to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our campus community, Wilmington College has developed these protocols with regard to COVID-19 and now include flu and RSV illnesses.

COVID-19 & Flu Vaccines

  • Wilmington College strongly recommends all faculty, staff and students to get fully vaccinated. 
  • For those faculty, staff, and students who are currently fully vaccinated, thank you for taking steps to protect yourself and our community. 
  • Faculty, staff, and students not vaccinated may be excluded from certain internships, travel, or other programs that require either the COVID19 or flu vaccination. 

 Facial Coverings / Masking Requirements

  • Wilmington College will continue with a mask-optional policy campus-wide.* 

*However, in keeping with our Quaker values, especially Respect for All Others, we must be mindful that there are staff, faculty, and students on campus who have concerns for themselves and/or their family members of being exposed to COVID-19.

Therefore, it is expected that when asked to wear a mask in a classroom, office space, meeting room or personal space by any individual on campus that we are respectful to that individual during that time. As a general practice, you should always carry a mask with you, in case you are asked to wear one.

  • Wilmington College fully supports those who choose to continue to wear a mask or need to wear a mask due to health concerns. 
  • Individuals on COVID-19 isolation or quarantine protocols are required to wear a mask per the CDC guidelines. 

Individual Self-Assessment Requirements – COVID-19, Flu & RSV

All students, staff and faculty should continue to monitor their personal health for symptoms including:

  • Cough. 
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing. 
  • Fever (100.4F or higher) 
  • Chills. 
  • Muscle pain. 
  • Sore throat. 
  • New loss of taste or smell.

Faculty, staff and students in non-compliance with protocols will be subject to disciplinary action through the Human Resources office and Student Affairs office, respectively. 
  • The current protocols replace all previous campus protocols.
