Students, faculty, and staff should stay home when feeling sick!
If you don’t feel well and are exhibiting symptoms, we ask that you do not come to campus.
Individuals with flu-like symptoms or who have been in close contact with someone who is confirmed as having COVID-19 in the previous 14 days should seek medical care and receive a negative COVID-19 test before returning to work or classes.
If you do not qualify for on-campus testing and feel a need to be tested, the university provides eight “wellness” sick-time hours per year to proactively care for your own health, including if you need to go for testing through your primary care provider. Additionally, if family members also need testing, Massachusetts law provides for the Small Necessities Leave, which provides up to 24 hours of time for family events (including for this use).
