Students who are unvaccinated or unboosted (but booster eligible) must quarantine for five days, followed by five days of strict mask use (surgical, N95 or KN95), if exposed to COVID-19.
Quarantine and isolation space on campus is limited. Non-residential students must quarantine off campus. Residential students are strongly encouraged to quarantine off campus if possible (within a 200 mile radius of campus).
Students who must quarantine on campus and are symptomatic may be moved to dedicated quarantine space (with the exception of campus residents who have a single room). Asymptomatic students may quarantine in their assigned rooms.
Residential students in quarantine should collect grab-and-go meals and remain masked at all times when outside of their room. Students with roommates and suitemates are considered households. As such, when not actively eating, drinking or sleeping, all household members are asked to mask as often as possible within their shared space. Guests are prohibited in rooms and suites where students are quarantining and students are responsible for cleaning and disinfecting common and high-touch surfaces often.
Academic accommodations will be made and students must follow the guidelines outlined in their course syllabus. Please let your professors know that you will not be attending class in person.
Students exposed to COVID-19 should monitor for symptoms for ten days. If you develop symptoms, please email Health Services or call 781-239-6363.
In order to be approved for release on day six, students must test negative on day five. Asymptomatic students quarantining on campus will test at the COVID-19 Testing Center in Webster; symptomatic students in quarantine should test at Health Services. Students quarantining off campus may come to campus to test on day five or obtain a rapid or PCR test off campus and contact Health Services at 781-239-6363.
If a student tests negative on day five, has no fever, and symptoms have improved, they will be cleared to return to class with strict mask use (KN95 or surgical).
