Will instructors and students have access to computer labs (e.g., DataLab, Eaton Lab, Tisch, SEC classrooms with computers, etc.)?

Yes, computer labs will be available at pre-COVID-19 capacity. TTS is bolstering their virtual desktop services so students can access software online outside of physical labs. Remote users should use Tufts VPN when using the virtual lab software.

Will I be notified if a student in my class is sick, in quarantine/isolation, or tests positive?

Expand Filter List Collapse Filter List

Instructors will be notified if a student who is slated to attend in-person will be unable to because they are in quarantine or isolation. No medical diagnosis or test results will be shared with faculty members, but you will be notified automatically via email when students are directed to refrain from in-person participation and when they have been cleared to return to in-person activities.

It seems likely that every in-person class may have at least one student who will be either fully remote or in quarantine at some point over the semester. Should we prepare for every class to also be available online?

Yes, all instructors should plan for the possibility that one or more of your students will need to quarantine or isolate for some period at any point during the semester. Per the updated move-in guidelinesmany students will be participating remotely the first week of the term. Also, students with certain disabilities may require online access.

How will classes continue if faculty get sick?

Expand Filter List Collapse Filter List

The Dean’s Offices will handle this, as we normally do, with the department chairs. We may choose another instructor from within Tufts or hire someone externally to fill in. Faculty do not need to identify replacements ahead of time.

If an instructor is healthy but must quarantine, they can continue teaching from home if that is possible for them. It is a good idea to prepare some asynchronous activities for each week in Canvas that students can work on, if needed.
