COVID-19 Information Center

As a result of the high transmissibility of the current COVID-19 variant as well as rising positivity rates on campus, MCPHS is temporarily requiring all students, faculty, and staff to wear well-fitting surgical, KF94, KN95, or N95 masks beginning on Friday, May 20, 2022. Masks will be required in all indoor campus locations unless eating or drinking, or in a private office. Mask requirements in labs, clinics, testing centers, etc. have not changed.

We understand that wearing a mask may be inconvenient for some, but for academic continuity and success of our students during the short summer semester, as well as for the health and safety of our entire Community, temporarily requiring masks is the best way to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

As we have throughout the pandemic, we will continuously monitor the levels of COVID-19 cases and keep the Community up to date on guidance for wearing masks. We will monitor this recent COVID surge closely, with hopes to remove this temporary requirement once the surge has subsided.

Masks will be provided at the entrances to all campus locations for those Community members who need them.

Thank you for your commitment to keeping MCPHS safe. For questions on our temporary mask requirement, please email or call 617.732.2798.
