Health and Safety: A Personal and Shared Responsibility
Last updated: November 25, 2020 at 8:24 PM
As we plan for a robust semester, our community's health, safety and well-being is our highest priority.
By following the university's comprehensive health and safety rules, we will ensure that the upcoming semester is defined by the rich and engaging educational experience Brandeis is known for. Our protocols and procedures follow guidance provided by the city of Waltham, Middlesex County, the commonwealth of Massachusetts and the federal government.
Students, faculty and staff will be expected to pledge that they will adhere to required health and safety guidelines established by the university and the commonwealth of Massachusetts. Each of us has a personal and shared responsibility to create a safe and healthy environment to protect ourselves and those around us.The following violations of Brandeis’ health and safety policies will result in immediate referral to the department of Student Rights and Community Standards for adjudication, which may result in extensive restrictions from living on or coming to campus:
- Missing more than one scheduled COVID-19 test.
- Failure by a student residing in on-campus housing to submit the Daily Health Assessment every day (all students, faculty and staff will be required to demonstrate that they have completed and passed the daily assessment to attend an on-campus class or enter public facilities such as the Library or Gosman).
- Failure by a student residing in off-campus housing to submit the Daily Health Assessment every day the student visits campus.
- Violation of orders to quarantine or isolate as required by a healthcare provider.
- Failure to wear facial coverings as designated.
- Other serious violations as determined by the Dean of Students Office.
