December 21, 2021

Shifts to Remote Learning Jan. 4-10

Lancaster Theological Seminary announced Dec. 21 that the campus will be closed to the public through Jan. 10, 2022, due to the increasing spread of COVID-19 and the omicron variant in Lancaster County. Following the scheduled winter break, when the school is closed from Dec. 23 through Jan. 3, the Seminary will shift to remote learning from Jan. 4-10.

Associate Dean the Rev. Dr. Vanessa Lovelace said, “We will continue to review recommendations from local and state health authorities and the CDC and update you once we have additional information before January 10.”

The Seminary library also will be closed to the public during this time with access granted only to current students, faculty, and staff. Contact-free checkout and pickup are available to all patrons.

Lancaster Seminary continues to follow the CDC guidelines for wearing a mask in public, indoor settings, regardless of vaccination status. We also encourage you to be COVID safe by wearing a mask when you’re spending time indoors with others you do not live with, frequent hand washing, limiting large gatherings, getting vaccinated and boosted, and contacting your primary care physician if you’re feeling unwell.
