As public health conditions evolve in Ohio and across the globe, Kenyon remains committed to protecting the health of students, employees and guests. Starting in the summer of 2021, students living and working on campus are required to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, and employees are strongly encouraged to do so as well. In keeping with the latest guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Ohio Department of Health, fully vaccinated individuals are permitted to go without masks both indoors and outdoors on Kenyon’s campus. Unvaccinated individuals should continue wearing a mask and practicing social distancing, as should anyone else who feels safer doing so.

The College will continue to work with Knox Public Health to interpret and apply guidance from local, state and national authorities, with the primary goal of protecting our campus and its surrounding communities.
