Reunion 2022 COVID-19 Guidance

The College has issued new COVID-19 guidance for alumni, family members, and guests planning to attend Reunion activities June 2–5, 2022:

Fully Vaccinated* Alumni, Family Members, and Guests
  • Pre-arrival or on-site testing will NOT be required for those who are fully vaccinated*.
  • Guests must provide proof of vaccination using the smartphone app Health Pass by CLEAR or bring their CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card along with a valid state or federal ID to Reunion.
  • Once arriving at Bowdoin, all guests should go to the Reunion Welcome Center with proof of their full vaccination to receive their Reunion nametags which will serve as proof of vaccination and will be checked at event entrances throughout the weekend.

Unvaccinated or Partially Vaccinated Alumni, Family Members, and Guests

While we expect that almost everyone returning for Reunion will be fully vaccinated, we also know that a handful of individuals have legitimate medical exemptions for COVID-19 vaccinations.

  • Those who are NOT fully vaccinated and boosted (if eligible), will be required to take an observed antigen test upon arrival on campus that will cover attendance from Thursday’s arrival through Sunday’s departure. Testing will be required for those with no vaccinations at all, as well as for those eligible for a booster who have not received one.
  • With a negative test, those in attendance will receive a Reunion nametag that will be their pass without restriction for entry to all events, including meal functions.
  • Anyone who tests positive for COVID-19 will be required to leave campus and will not be permitted to attend any Reunion events or activities.

*The College considers an individual to be fully vaccinated two weeks after their second dose in a two-dose series (such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines) or two weeks after a single-dose vaccine (Johnson & Johnson) and after they have received a COVID-19 booster shot once eligible.
