What to Do if You or Someone You Know Is Symptomatic or Tests Positive

If you exhibit COVID-19 symptoms or receive a positive test result, please do not come to campus; follow the steps below.

The nursing staff is available Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

If you need help after business hours, please follow these steps:

  • Students: Schedule a telehealth appointment via Online Connect, a partnership between Berklee and Tufts Medical Center. 
  • Faculty and staff: Please contact your primary care provider.


Contact Tracing

Contact tracers (CTs) are trained professionals within the Berklee community who reach out to those who have tested positive to help identify people who may have been in close contact with an infected individual. CTs will share isolation and quarantine protocols to help keep our community safe and protected from further spreading of the virus. Berklee CTs are not medical professionals and will not provide medical advice or clinical support. If CTs are unable to get in touch with contacts, they will leave voicemails and send text messages until calls are returned. 

General questions regarding contact tracing at Berklee can be directed to cttm@berklee.edu or 339-666-2940.
