Campus Guest Policy for Fall Semester 2020
In an effort to safeguard the health and well-being of the Rosemont College campus community, the following policies will apply for the Fall Semester 2020:
- Campus Access
The Wendover Road entrance will serve as the single point of entry to campus. It will be staffed 24 hours per day, 7 days per week by the Office of Public Safety.
All students and employees entering campus should be prepared to show their Rosemont College ID at entry. All guests, as registered by the procedures outlined below, should be prepared to show photo ID at entry.
Individuals who have not been registered for a visit in accord with the procedures below will not be permitted entry to campus.
All guests will be required to sign a Visitor Waiver and complete a Wellness Check at entry to campus. If they do not have one, guests will be provided a cloth mask at entry to campus. Guests will be provided with a temporary badge that must be worn during the entirety of their campus visit.
- COVID-19 Testing for Out-of-State Visitors
In compliance with Governor Wolf’s latest guidance, students and family members visiting Rosemont’s campus from out-of-state must produce evidence upon arrival to campus of a negative test for COVID-19 that is dated within 3 days of their on-campus visit. For more information, visit: The PA Department of Health website.
- Guests of Faculty and Staff Members
All faculty and staff members are encouraged to utilize Zoom and other technologies as an alternative to in-person campus visits in order to interact with those outside of the College community. However, staff and faculty members are permitted to invite and interact with guests on campus, provided that those in-person interactions are necessary to the faculty or staff member’s role at the College. Social visits by colleagues, friends, and family members are not permitted. Faculty and staff members must register the name, cell phone number, company name (if applicable), of their guest(s), as well as the purpose of the visit and the date and time of their visit with Matt Baker, Director of Public Safety, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org 24 hours in advance of the visit. While on campus, guests must comply with the College’s social distancing guidelines and must wear masks. All College vendors are considered guests, under this policy.
- Guests of Students
With the exception of one designated family member, students are not permitted to have guests on campus. Each student’s designated family member must be identified by August 31 via the button below.
If a family situation necessitates the changing of the individual designated, the student is responsible for communicating that to Troy Chiddick, Dean of Students, by emailing email@example.com. On-campus visits by a designated family member must be scheduled 24 hours in advance through the Office of Residence Life by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Weekend visits must be scheduled by 5 pm on Fridays. Students must register the name of their designated family member, as well as the date and time of their visit. Visits are permitted between the hours of 9 am to 8 pm, 7 days per week. Visits are not to exceed 2 hours in length.
Designated family members are not permitted to enter the Residence Halls, and are encouraged to visit outdoors or in the Community Center’s common spaces or Dining Hall, the Library, or in other buildings on campus. All designated family members must abide by the College’s social distancing guidelines and must wear masks while on campus.
Except under emergency circumstances, as determined by the Offices of Public Safety, Human Resources, or Student Life, no exceptions to this policy will be permitted.
