There are 4 comments on Boston University Weekly COVID-19 Report: October 7 to 13

  1. Please share details of Dr. Deborah Birx’s visit to BU COVID labs. This is a great opportunity to hear from a leading expert.

    So much has been invested in COVID testing, protocols and sacrifices by all to keep each other safe, it would be nice to hear her views on how this community is responding and recommendations for adjustments to continue this success.

  2. Many students are going to plan on going home for Thanksgiving, and staying home until classes resume in Jan. How are you handling this in your system? Will students have a way to report that they are home/not on campus so they won’t be marked non-compliant? Also, what has the financial impact of all of this testing been?

  3. If they are going to start sending EHS people through our labs without announcement, how are we supposed to protect ourselves from them? One of our lab protocols is no strangers. How can we trust these EHS people not to bring covid into our labs

    1. EHS and facility guys should follow COVID-19 regulations. They usually walk around without proper masks or gloves. They do not follow the lab traffic pattern and maximum capacity. They do not sign in and out when visiting a lab. They do not wash hands from one lab to the other labs. That could be a really super virus spreader concern.
