Yes, according to Massachusetts law and Tufts policy, you must remain in quarantine for 14 days or until you obtain a negative COVID-19 test when you return from travel to places not on Massachusetts’ “lower risk” states list.
If you are an AS&E student and are returning from travel that you have previously registered and obtained approval from the Office of the Dean of Student Affairs, you will be required to go through the arrival testing and extended quarantine period again when they return to campus. The exception to this is Thanksgiving. If you are taking classes or using campus facilities in person and who choose to travel off campus for Thanksgiving (even locally for a Thanksgiving dinner), you may not return to campus and instead must finish the semester remotely. This applies to all AS&E undergraduate and graduate students traveling both in-region or out-of-region.
If you are faculty or staff (including post-doc), in accordance with Massachusetts’ travel order, you will be required to fill out a travel form and self-quarantine for 14 days or until you receive a negative COVID-19 test result, unless you can present a negative COVID-19 test that has been administered within 72 hours prior to arrival in MA. Exemptions include people commuting to work from another state and those coming to Massachusetts from a “low risk” state. You should consult MA guidance for the latest updates, as exemptions and restrictions are likely to change.
If you work on campus, you can schedule a COVID-19 test at any of Tufts’ three testing locations (62R Talbot in Medford/Somerville, 116 Harrison Ave. in Boston, Mayer Administrative Building in Grafton), whether or not you normally participate in surveillance testing. You should email email@example.com in advance to schedule a test. If you work exclusively remotely, you are not eligible for COVID-19 testing at Tufts but are still required to abide by Massachusetts rules.
You should speak with your manager or supervisor (including prior to traveling, if possible) on how Massachusetts and CDC quarantine guidelines may affect your ability to return to work.
