Babson will continue to prioritize the health and safety of our community by carrying forward or evolving effective mitigation strategies and protocols.

Last updated Friday, October 8, 2021

Students and employees must adhere to arrival testing protocols. Refer to the testing sections of the Student and Employee pages for further details.

The Babson Testing Center is located on the second floor of the Webster Center. Please Schedule a Babson PCR Test and bring your Babson One Card or photo ID. Masks are required in the Testing Center.

Symptomatic testing will continue to be available to full-time students via Babson Health Services. Anyone exhibiting symptoms should remain at home or in their assigned residence and contact Babson Health Services or their physician for guidance.

Babson is extending the indoor masking requirement for all individuals until further notice, regardless of vaccination status. Masking is required in shared indoor spaces where there is a high likelihood of co-mingling, including conference rooms, shared offices, classrooms, small study rooms and common areas. Masks may be removed when actively eating or drinking.

We anticipate ongoing weekly surveillance testing and will notify the campus of any changes to that period as we evaluate current data. Students should test once a week (every 7 days).

Babson’s Facilities team continues to deploy advanced cleaning and disinfecting methods and protocols.

Enhanced air filtration systems implemented over the past year will remain in place.

Signage will be updated based on the needs of our community and as health recommendations and best practices evolve.

Please continue to be mindful of modified foot-traffic flow on campus, including one-way directional signage and designated entrances/exits.

Overnight guests (outside of the Babson community) are not permitted in Babson residence halls. We will continue to evaluate this policy in the coming weeks and evolve as appropriate.

All other visitors should review the visitor and supplier protocol and adhere to all Babson policies and CDC recommended preventative measures. Arrival testing and asymptomatic surveillance testing are not required for visitors at this time.
