Revised 2021 COVID-19 Guidelines

At A Glance Revised
COVID-19 Guidelines

BC Tiger Family, thank you for your cooperation as “campus life” was adjusted in response to the global pandemic, COVID-19.  Students, Faculty and Staff your demonstrated creativity and innovation during our attempts to reduce the spread of COVID-19 were recognized across the state and nation—the resilience of BC during COVID-19 is well documented.  As we prepare for the 2021-2022 academic year,  we continue to be guided by recent Center for Disease and Environmental Control (CDC) policies and concurring local and state guidelines that have rolled back the restrictions on mask/face cloth use based upon the increased availability of vaccines across the country. 

“DHEC has reviewed the science behind the CDC’s recent mask guidelines, and we concur. South Carolinians who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 no longer need to wear masks indoors or outdoors with a few exceptions.

As the state’s public health agency, we have a responsibility to protect the health and safety of all South Carolinians. This includes advising our residents what activities are safe for them.”

S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control

To that end, all BC students, employees, and visitors to campus are expected to be fully vaccinated. If a person is not vaccinated, then they are expected to follow the CDC policies on mask/face covering wearing and social distancing. Those who are fully vaccinated may continue to wear a mask/face covering or social distance, if they chose to do so. 

The health and safety of BC Tigers remains our top priority. Therefore, continuing to provide a quality educational experience in an environment of wellness is critical as we move beyond the negative impacts of COVID-19. We expect and are preparing for classrooms and all learning and co-curricular areas and dining  to return to normal capacity.  The policies listed below are intended to provide an outline of the overall campus approach. Details can be found in the respective section on the BC website.
