Faculty & Staff
We continue to recommend all community members stay informed regarding updated CDC and Mass. Dept. of Public Health guidelines for vaccinations and managing illness including COVID-19. In the fall, we will again host a Flu and COVID-19 vaccine clinic providing on campus access to vaccines.
We also will maintain protective measures, even if regulations no longer require us to do so, including upgrades to our ventilation systems and offering N-95 mask fitting to faculty and staff under the ADA accommodation process. Should you need further information regarding ADA, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
As our policies evolve to incorporate greater personal responsibility and risk assessment, we will maintain important protocols that must be followed if you test positive for COVID-19:
- You will need to self-isolate for 5 days per the federal guidelines. As long as your symptoms are improving and you have been fever free for at least 24 hours without use of medication, you can resume normal activity on day 6. Masking is required for 5 days after a positive test. Current guidance from CDC/MA DPH is masking required from day 6-11.
- You are encouraged to contact Jessie Bernstein, Employee Nurse Practitioner, at email@example.com to inform her of your status, as she can provide guidance and answer any questions you may have regarding who may be a close contact at work.
