Keeping Our Community Healthy

For the summer semester, we have implemented robust safety protocols to effectively protect the safety of community members and keep our infection rate low. We are following a phased approach as we progress to being fully back on campus.

Phase 2: Health and Safety Protocols (July 1–August 20, 2021)

We are currently in Phase 2, which runs from July 1 to August 20, 2021. Please note that this information is subject to change, and the community will be notified of any changes accordingly. These plans were developed in partnership with Tufts Medical Center and with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Massachusetts Department of Public Health.

    During this phase, as more members of our community are fully vaccinated, restrictions for faculty, staff, and vendor partners who are fully vaccinated (at least 14 days after your final vaccination) have been lifted substantially. Throughout the summer as we continue to collect vaccination documentation, any individuals who are in the process of getting fully vaccinated or anyone who is not yet vaccinated will continue to follow strict health and safety protocols. Before the fall semester begins, you will need to be fully vaccinated or to have received an exemption for medical or religious reasons through Health and Wellness (for students) or Human Resources (for faculty and staff). 

    During Phase 2, regardless of your vaccination status, continue to follow these protocols:

    • Complete your daily symptom reporting through CoVerified. 
    • Use CoVerified to get a clearance badge to enter campus buildings. 
    • Continue to schedule your tests through CoVerified.

    COVID-19 Test Results Dashboard

    We maintain a public dashboard with the COVID-19 test results, to be updated daily. The dashboard does not include any individuals’ names or personal information; it only shows the number of positive cases in our community.
