Tufts is no longer conducting routine surveillance testing. Tufts is providing testing to individuals presenting with symptoms and to self-identified close contacts only.

Close Contacts

In accordance with CDC and MA DPH guidelines, the university is recommending close contacts to test on day 5 following an exposure and to wear a mask for 10 days. You will find the operating hours of Tufts testing sites on the university’s testing calendar. If you test positive, please follow the isolation guidelines for your campus.

You will find additional campus policies, requirements, and recommendations for all students, faculty, staff, and visitors on our Healthy@Tufts page.
