Summer 2021 Students

Testing

If you are fully vaccinated (at least two weeks past your final vaccine dose) and have already uploaded an image of your vaccination records to the health portal, you will not need to test again after your arrival test.

If you are not yet fully vaccinated (or if you have not yet posted your documentation to the health portal), you must continue testing once per week on Tuesdays, between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. at the Field House until you have achieved full vaccination and uploaded an image of your vaccination card.

  • Starting June 1, students will test once a week on Tuesdays only from 10am-2pm at Towne Field House.
  • Please continue to use CoVerified to schedule your appointments.
  • Drive-through will remain available during these times. Please refer to this map for specific locations and traffic patterns.

For everyone’s health and safety, including your own, please make every effort to make it to your scheduled testing appointment on the day and time you’ve reserved through CoVerified. If for some entirely unavoidable reason you miss your Tuesday appointment, make a CoVerified appointment for Thursday that same week.

Email covid-test-scheduling​@williams​.edu for scheduling-related questions.

Uploading your vaccination documentation

Once you have received your second vaccine dose (for Moderna and Pfizer) or a single shot (if you receive Johnson & Johnson), please upload an image of your vaccine card to the Health Services patient portal or email it to health​@williams​.edu right away. You will be released from the testing requirement after you have done so.

Travel

You are free to travel during the summer. We are lifting all restrictions on where you can go, who you can travel with and what modes of transportation you can use. Enjoy—safely, as always, of course!

Masking and social distancing

If you are fully vaccinated, you will not need to wear a mask or socially distance indoors or outdoors (though you may choose to continue doing so).

If you are not fully vaccinated, you must wear a mask indoors except in your private residential area, and outdoors when in close proximity to others.

Regardless of your vaccination status, you will be required to wear a mask at the testing site and on any public transportation.

Health Center access

The Health Center is closed for the summer. If you need medical assistance, please check out the Health services website for information about local resources.

Facilities access

Your ID will give you swipe access to Paresky, the libraries and academic buildings (when relevant).

The upper fitness center in Lasell will also be open to students throughout the spring-to-summer transition. Check the Athletics webpage for information about access to the pool and other facilities.

Dining

Driscoll is your dining destination for the summer! Head over there Monday-Saturday for breakfast (7:30-9:30 a.m.), lunch (11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.) and dinner (5-7 p.m.).

On Sundays you can look forward to brunch (11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.) and dinner (5-7 p.m.).

If you have further questions, please contact Sue Gaskell in the Dean of the College’s office.
