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

Last updated Tuesday, May 3, 2022

  • The Babson Testing Center in Webster will be closed beginning Friday, May 13, and asymptomatic testing (required and voluntary) will be paused.
  • Symptomatic students will continue to test via Health Services.
  • Faculty and staff experiencing Covid symptoms should remain home, contact their physician, and get a test off campus. Employees who test positive are asked to confidentially provide that information to our nurse practitioner at
  • Newly arriving summer students will self-test upon arrival to campus or be tested as a result of international travel requirements.

Beginning May 16, masks will be welcomed, but not required, across all campus locations, including in classrooms. Masks continue to be required in Health Services.

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.
