The following message regarding COVID-19 testing, clinics and protocols was shared with College of Charleston faculty and staff on Wednesday, Nov. 17, 2021:


Dear Faculty and Staff:

Thank you all for your support throughout the fall semester. We are nearing the end of the term with great results and would like to share the below updates.

  • Our vaccine and booster clinics last week had an amazing turnout. So much so that we are working with our partners to possibly hold another clinic on campus. We will let you know if that is possible.
  • We continue to have COVID-19 rapid test kits available at the Office of Human Resources. You must present your Cougar Card, and one kit will be provided per person while supplies last.
  • We continue to offer free weekly COVID-19 testing on campus and have added additional testing days for the weeks before and after Thanksgiving. Details, including how to pre-register, can be found on Back on the Bricks along with off-campus locations for testing.
  • For the reminder of the fall semester and as we start the spring semester, we will continue to require face coverings in our classrooms and inside all campus facilities. The only exception being some exercise facilities, namely Johnson Gym, Silcox Gym and the George Street Fitness Center.

We will continue to monitor the health and wellbeing of our campus community and follow the recommendations of state and public health agencies and best practices at other institutions of higher education.

We appreciate your patience and support.
