Bethany is continuing its phased reopening as classes begin for the 2020-21 academic year. The Seminary is responding to the pandemic with caution and care. We are doing everything we can to keep the community members healthy and safe.
The safety measures outlined in the reopening plan remain in place. Bethany students and employees continue to follow Golden Rule Practices, including the wearing of face masks, social distancing, avoiding large gatherings in enclosed spaces. Classes offer participants the option of attending in person or by Zoom. Weather permitting, worship will take by outdoors and in person on the first Wednesday of each month. Other worship opportunities will take place on Zoom. Employees continue to spend significant time working remotely, with most meetings happening via Zoom. However, a few employees will be in the office each weekday. If you would like to visit the Bethany Center, please call 800-287-8822 to make an appointment.
If members of the Bethany community test positive for Covid-19, Seminary leadership will assist with contact tracing to help avoid continued spread of the virus. Leadership will communicate with students, faculty, and staff when we learn of cases in our community. We are grateful to everyone for their cooperation during this difficult time.
