There are 10 comments on Anticipating Major Snowfall, Charles River Campus to Close Monday, Classes to Proceed Remotely

  1. Please consider that staff with young children are already far too burnt out to work remotely on a snow day while also taking care of their kids. We have been struggling since last March and this doesn’t help.

  2. What should you do if you are nonessential but have your weekly Covid test at the Comm Ave location? Do you still need to show up to stay compliant?

    1. If you are a faculty or staff member and were scheduled for a test today, please reschedule for the first day you will be back on campus. An exception will be made for compliance purposes. If you have further questions please contact BU COVID-19 Employee Support at covidhelp@bu.edu .

    1. Hi Evan – To build on what Doug said, the BU Dental Health Center at 930 Comm Ave is open today. We are closely monitoring the storm, and there is a possibility we may close early depending on how the storm progresses. If that occurs, all affected patients will be contacted.

  3. So does a Charles River Campus closure mean that if we are working remotely due to the pandemic, but we would normally report to the CRC for work if not for the pandemic, we have a snow day today and are not expected to work?

      1. Remember to submit a comp day for today if you are regular exempt staff. This is still an emergency closure and we all deserve a comp day for working today.

        Good luck to any parents who now have to work and watch their kids at the same time today. At least my department tells still to not work if they have other commitments such as watching family members and they just don’t earn a comp day.
