When and how will full on-campus operations resume?
On Tuesday, June 23, the university announced its plans for restarting residential campus operations in Fall 2020, for students in the schools of Arts and Sciences and Engineering and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts. Please see the Fall 2020 Campus Guide for AS&E Students for more information. For information about Fall 2020 and the graduate and professional schools, please refer to the individual websites of the schools.
Tufts plans to phase in the return of staff over time in a coordinated process to prioritize appropriate social distancing, availability of PPE (personal protective equipment), hygiene protocols, symptom screening, testing capabilities for COVID-19, and contact tracing.
All members of the Tufts community will be given advance notice of when they will be expected to return to work on campus.
No one should report to work on campus unless and until they have been explicitly cleared to do so by their school or department leadership.
Tufts will expand on-site staffing based on an assessment of mission-critical operations, ability to control and manage specific work environments, and necessity of accessing on-site resources. Return-to-campus decisions, once approved, will be issued by your respective dean, vice president, or division leader.
