Following the notice from the Massachusetts governor’s office that the state’s COVID-19 public health emergency would end on May 11, 2023, BU’s COVID-19 policies transitioned on May 23, 2023. Below are the current University guidelines. Please remember that the best ways to protect yourself and others against severe COVID-19 infections are:

  • Stay up-to-date with COVID-19 vaccines.
  • Wear a mask in crowded, indoor spaces.
  • Test if you are not feeling well.

For more information about COVID-19, students can visit the Student Health Services COVID-19 website, and faculty and staff can visit the Occupational Health Center COVID-19 website.
