COVID-19 Updates from GSBS

General Guidelines

All students must adhere to the current Tufts guidelines and protocols regarding testing and access to the campus.   Details can be found on the Tufts Coronavirus website.

All students physically on campus must participate in the surveillance program and receive a COVID test once per week; utilize the daily health check prior to coming to campus; and wear the Tufts provided face covering when in all campus buildings.

As of June 1, 2021, face coverings are no longer required outside, and physical distancing is no longer required in labs, classrooms, or common spaces for those students, faculty, and staff who are fully vaccinated. Unvaccinated individuals are required to wear masks and physically distance when outside.

For more details, see the Tufts Coronavirus website.

Vaccinations

All GSBS students are required to be vaccinated by July 1, 2021. All vaccines approved by another country or the World Health Organization (WHO) will be accepted as meeting Tufts’ requirement for vaccination. Individuals who have received a non-WHO vaccine may be offered one approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Like other vaccine requirements in place for students, medical and religious exemptions will be considered. More details about this policy, including information on how to submit proof of vaccination status, is posted on the COVID19 vaccine website.

All faculty and staff are required to provide documentation of COVID-19 vaccination, request a medical or religious exemption, or complete a declination form indicating a decision to decline vaccination. More details about this policy, including information on how to submit proof of vaccination status, is posted on the COVID19 vaccine website

Travel and Testing Policy

All domestic and personal international travel is allowed without restrictions. All travelers (personal and Tufts-related) must follow arrival quarantine protocols according to their vaccination status, and should be familiar with and follow local guidance at their destination. All Tufts-related international travel must follow the current travel review process.

July & September Matriculants

GSBS looks forward to welcoming incoming students in Summer/Fall 2021.

More information regarding matriculation and orientation will be available later in the summer.
