Reopening Massachusetts State Plans

The Baker-Polito Administration’s comprehensive plan to safely reopen the Massachusetts economy was published May 18th. The plan provides guidance to various industries on phased reopenings and eases social restrictions while minimizing the health impacts of COVID-19. 

As we communicated on May 8th, we understand many of you are eager to return to campus. While the governor’s model allows general office spaces to reopen on May 25th, we will continue with our current practices while we await news about the fall term. This will allow us to tailor our plans depending on whether students are returning in the fall or not. The college is continuing to track the latest public health information and gather advice from experts in the meantime, and we will move cautiously with respect to fully reopening campus. 

To help people plan for the long-term return to work, we have compiled resources, including short videos, informational posters, and our state-required COVID Control Plan below. We will continue to share more details and resources as they become available.
