The Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston has implemented a dress code that states the following: “All clothing should be modest in nature and free from scandalous/inappropriate graphics or text. Clothing advocating for drugs or alcohol is prohibited. Guys must wear shirts at all times except in the pool area. Females are to wear bathing suits that are modest in nature, covering like a traditional one-piece. If someone doesn’t have such swimwear, a dark colored shirt may be worn over their bathing suit.”
