Campus Activity Level Shifting to Blue

March 17, 2021

Dear Grinnellians,

COVID-19 public health conditions continue to improve across our county and state, which has led us to make the decision to shift our campus activity from Level Yellow to Level Blue. Level Blue indicates that community health precautions are still in place for most campus activities but we can begin limited additional activities. Decisions about in-person activities will continue to go through the Executive Operations Team. Individuals or departments planning an in-person activity should consult Guidelines for Activities and Use of College Spaces.

Until the College moves to activity Level Green, campus departments and offices that are currently working remotely will continue to do so. Over the next several weeks, the Post-Pandemic Workplace working group will develop a plan for an incremental and phased return to work.

Our public health team will continue to monitor and review several factors to determine campus and institutional activity levels. When public health conditions change, we will send another update indicating the new campus activity level. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out via email at

Thank you,

Kaitlin Wilcox, Heather Cox, Ahon Gooptu, Nora Leahy, Elaine Marzluff, Ben Newhouse, Angela Voos, and Mattia Wells
