Most COVID Restrictions Lifted For Returning Campbell Students

Regular COVID-19 updates will be made available online at www.campbell.edu/coronavirus/

The return of Campbell students will also mark a “return to normalcy” on the University’s main campus this fall. 

Indoor social distancing and capacity limitations have been lifted, and all classrooms, meeting areas and events (including athletic events) will return to full capacity with no social distancing requirements, according to University officials. 

Masks will only be required for students who are not vaccinated, and Campbell University will require all students to show proof of vaccination or receive a negative COVID-19 test 48 hours prior to returning to campus. 

Students who have not been fully vaccinated or have not submitted a negative COVID-19 test within 48 hours of their arrival on campus will have an opportunity on campus to receive a rapid result covid test.

Move-In Weekend at Campbell is Aug. 21-22. 

“As we continue to make plans in preparation for the upcoming academic year, the Health & Safety Committee has lifted many restrictions that we all were under last year.

“By making these important changes, we look forward to this academic year being much more like a ‘normal’ year at Campbell University,” said Vice President for Student Life and head of Campbell’s Health & Safety Task Force Dr. Dennis Bazemore, “with many opportunities for students to participate in campus activities, Welcome Week, Homecoming, athletic events, musical and theatre productions and intramural sports and enjoying all the other resources available to them.”

Students who are not vaccinated but choose to do so will be able to receive a vaccination upon arrival on campus and throughout the fall semester. The University will hold drawings for prizes for the first six weeks of the semester to award students who have been fully vaccinated and who have filled out self-report forms.
