  1. I would love it if Drs. Platt or Waters could answer this for me: is there an objective endpoint to any of the existing mandates? I’m primarily wondering about the indoor mask mandate but curious about the vaccination/booster mandate as well.

    For example, is there some guideline in place saying “if the campus is under X% positivity for Y period of time, the mask mandate is dropped”? Same for the vaccination mandate.

    Or is it just the subjective feeling of themselves and whoever else is in charge of making these decisions?

  2. Thank you BU for being so informative and transparent in this article and throughout the pandemic! It is easy to see that BU is a world class university, not just guided by the science but leading in understanding what is going on. As a parent this has given me so much confidence in sending my student to BU!
