Testing and arrival
When you arrive back on campus in the Fall, you will be required to take a rapid COVID test, results of which will be known within 30 minutes. If you test negative and are fully vaccinated, you can go about your activities and begin your weekly COVID-19 routine testing program within 3 to 4 days.
If you test positive, you need to isolate for 10 days in your off-campus apartment or in the Mods. You will be put in touch with a clinician from Tufts Health Service who will follow your case and can provide medical advice and monitoring.
Pre-orientation and orientation participation
We expect that the vast majority of students will arrive on campus vaccinated. Those students who will need to be vaccinated and/or quarantined upon arrival, will be able to participate in programming once they receive at least their first dose and complete their quarantine. They will still be required to follow all guidelines for unvaccinated people until they meet the definition of being fully vaccinated.
We encourage all students to visit the Tufts coronavirus website before coming to campus. The website is your best source for current information since we may need to revise our guidelines in accordance with changes in national, state, and local public health requirements. If you have additional questions, you can contact email@example.com.
With best wishes for your summer,
