Faculty, Staff & Managers
Staff members whose roles require them to work on-campus should speak with their supervisors to confirm work arrangements, schedule, and timing for coming to campus.
Employees are not required to have a COVID test before returning to campus; however, employees who are regularly on campus may be required to participate in routine surveillance testing. See plans for lifting COVID-19 restrictions by campus.

All faculty and staff are required to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19, which includes receiving a booster shot based on eligibility per CDC guidance. Individuals who have already received an accommodation for their primary vaccination series are considered accommodated for the booster requirement.
There is a rolling deadline for complying with this new requirement. All individuals who are eligible to receive a booster on or before January 15, 2022 must comply by February 15, 2022. Individuals who are eligible after January 15, 2022 will have 30 days from their date of eligibility to comply with this policy.
All faculty, staff, and students who come to the Medford/Somerville and SMFA campuses are required to participate in routine surveillance testing through April 30, 2022.
When you are asked to return to campus, you must complete a training module to prepare for the new safety protocols. Once you have completed the module, you will need to complete the acknowledgment form. The training course Returning to Tufts Campuses is available for completion on the Tufts Learning Center.
