Colby-Sawyer’s foremost priority remains the safety and well-being of our students, faculty and staff. Travel increases the risk of exposure to and transmission of COVID-19. Consistent with the CDC, U.S. Department of State, and State of New Hampshire guidelines, the following travel restrictions are in place at Colby-Sawyer until further notice:
Student travel anywhere outside of New London, N.H., is limited to “essential travel” only. Examples of essential travel include doctor appointments, internships, employment, family emergencies and college sponsored field trips.
Students who travel outside of New England (New Hampshire, Maine, Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island) should note the destination on their daily health questionnaire. Students traveling outside of New England may be required to quarantine for 14 days and/or participate in COVID-19 testing upon their return as determined by the Director of Baird Health and Counseling Center. Students who develop COVID-19-related symptoms during or after travel must not return to campus and should notify their primary care provider. Students who return to campus after traveling and develop symptoms while on campus should report them when answering their daily health questionnaire. Baird Health and Counseling Center will contact the student and discuss next steps.
Colby-Sawyer 15 Passenger Vans may be operated by authorized drivers who can transport no more than seven passengers at a time. Colby-Sawyer 15 Passenger Vans will be permitted to provide local transport to essential services like the grocery store and pharmacies. Van occupants are required to comply with all applicable restrictions and policies. At a minimum, this includes wearing a mask or face coverings, sanitizing their hands and practicing social distancing.
Colby-Sawyer 15 Passenger Van service to Concord, South Station and Logan Airport has been suspended until further notice.
This guidance will be updated as circumstances change.
