Dining Safety Protocol

Dartmouth Together

We understand the anxiety and uncertainty COVID-19 can cause about health and safety in our community. Please watch out for yourself and others in our community and use available resources to protect yourself and others.

If you feel sick or think you might have COVID-19 symptoms, wear a face mask, limit close contact with others, and test immediately even if you initially tested positive for COVID-19 in the 90-days prior.

  • Students: If you test positive, follow Dartmouth's isolation guidance. If you test negative, follow Dartmouth's COVID-19 test result instructions to determine if you need to complete a confirmatory test. Contact the Dartmouth College Health Service if you have questions about your health.
  • Faculty and staff: Contact Axiom Medical at 833-408-1338 for instructions on testing and isolation. Keep your primary care provider updated.

Face masks are scientifically proven to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and can help protect you and others. We encourage you to respect others who wish to wear a mask or who politely request that you wear a mask.

It is good practice to have at least two rapid antigen tests easily accessible to you in case you have to test. Students, faculty, and staff can pick up four take-home rapid antigen tests at a time at designated pick-up locations on and around campus. COVID-19 tests are also available through health care providers and local pharmacies, through resources provided by the New Hampshire and Vermont state health departments, and through resources provided by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Read Dartmouth's frequently asked questions on testing for more information.

Dartmouth leadership is committed to adapting to the ever-changing pandemic environment in ways that maintain in-person learning while helping to protect the mental and physical health of our students, faculty, and staff. Please show compassion, flexibility, and understanding toward fellow members of our community as our response to the pandemic evolves. We are grateful for your support, and we continue to welcome your feedback. As always, check your email, social media, and campus signs for updated information.
