Kenyon’s COVID-19 signage system is designed to communicate regulations and temporary space restrictions surrounding the College’s pandemic response in a clear and consistent manner. Signs included in the system are a mix of standard signs installed in common locations, preprinted signs available on request, PDF signs available to download and post, and customizable signs with messages that can be tweaked for particular spaces’ needs.

Preprinted Signs Available on Request

Signs reminding community members of regulations, expectations and best practices during the pandemic are available from the Office of Communications. Signs are printed on medium-weight paper. Contact Adam Gilson in the Office of Communications to order any of these signs.

Face Coverings Required

Face coverings are required in all campus buildings.

Social Distancing Reminder

CDC Recommendations

Customizable Signs
