Plaid Protects

Our efforts to combat the spread of COVID-19 follow a simple motto: “Plaid protects.”

Aditya Shankar For 2021-22 academic year, Alma is offering fully in-person instruction in small classes and a full slate of the athletic and extracurricular activities that are so important to the Alma experience. 

We encourage all in our campus community, and visitors, to follow these four guidelines to keep each other safe and well:

  • Stay home if you’re sick. Even seemingly minor symptoms can spread germs in small communities. 
  • Wash your hands. The easiest and most effective way to prevent the spread of germs is by washing your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds — and doing it often.
  • Be kind to one another. “PLAID Protects” one another, not just physically, but mentally and emotionally, too. Show your fellow Scots that you’re thinking about them!
  • Get vaccinated. By getting vaccinated, we are making a collective statement — that we’re looking out for one another in the classroom, residence hall, on the field, or the stage, and every where else on campus.

Alma College benefits when we abide by these easy-to-follow principles. Explore this site for more information on what we’re doing to keep our community healthy this year.
