Babson is evolving its COVID-19 protocols to emphasize personal responsibility and risk assessment and focus on longer-term management with the goal of returning to near normal.
Asymptomatic surveillance testing is now optional for community members who are up-to-date with their Covid-19 vaccination and booster. Individuals who are not up-to-date with vaccination, including those with an approved medical accommodation or religious exemption, must continue to test weekly and compliance will be tracked. All vendors and affiliates, as well as in-season athletes, are also required to continue weekly testing.
With this shift, we are discontinuing the issuance of the COVID-19 Dashboard. The last update, issued on April 3, will be available through the end of the semester, and all prior data will remain archived on the page for future reference.
Babson’s Crisis Response Team continues to rigorously monitor testing data, campus trends and other metric daily, and will reinstate testing requirements or implement targeted policy shifts as needed. We will continue to communicate regularly with the Babson community, and the current notification process for positive cases will remain in place.
We are grateful for our community’s continued partnership and commitment to keeping each other safe.
