Health & Safety Protocols
Belmont’s Procedures Surrounding COVID-19
We understand our visitors are concerned about safety, and we want everyone that visits our campus to be assured that we are taking your concerns and the well-being of our Belmont community seriously. Below outlines what we are asking of you.
- MASKS INDOORS – All individuals, regardless of vaccination status, are required to wear masks when indoors, except when in a personal residential or workspace, alone in a personal vehicle, or while actively eating or drinking.
MASKS OUTDOORS – Masks continue to be optional for all persons when outdoors on campus; however, everyone is encouraged to use good judgement about masks when in densely populated outdoor situations.
- Sanitation stations are available throughout campus and frequent hand washing is encouraged.
- Please be aware of COVID-19 symptoms: fever, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, and loss of taste or smell. Do not visit campus if you or someone traveling with you are exhibiting any of these symptoms.
- If you feel sick or have a temperature above 100.4, please stay home.
Monitoring the Threat of COVID-19 on Campus
Belmont campus leaders are continuously monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic. Belmont provides weekly reports each Monday on positive COVID-19 cases within its campus community as well as the percentage of those on campus who have been vaccinated. Please visit the Campus Data website to see the most up-to-date reporting.
City and State-Wide Data
Among many other data points being monitored by Belmont leadership are those for metropolitan Nashville and the state of Tennessee. The Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County maintains a COVID-19 response dashboard, ASafeNashville.org, with information and data on the coronavirus’ impact locally and the current phase of reopening for the county. The State of Tennessee dashboard offers similar information on conditions within the state and within each county in the state.
In the event that the threat to our campus increases or public health guidance or mandates dictate, Belmont’s health and safety protocols may change at any time. We appreciate your understanding and patience as we work together to maintain the health and safety of our visitors and our campus community.
