It’s King’s best shot to get back to the Quad

Like people around the world, the King’s community has refrained from gathering together during the Covid-19 pandemic. Returning to campus in September 2021 marks a major milestone on the path back to the in-person experience of King’s–from attending lectures to Quad life–that we have all missed.

Keeping our community safe is vital as we work toward this goal. Full vaccination for those who are able, in combination with regular, rapid Covid-19 testing and following Public Health guidelines are crucial steps to ensure a safe and successful return to campus.
