Community Update: new summer COVID policies now in effect

Dear Brandeis Community,

As I wrote last week, Brandeis has updated its on-campus COVID-19 policies for the summer. You can find an easy-to-scan list of updated policies on the Summer 2021 page of the COVID-19 Response website. Changes now in effect include:
In addition to changes now in effect, as of July 5, Brandeis will reduce distancing requirements and increase allowed gathering sizes. These changes are also noted on the Summer 2021 page. I encourage you to keep checking the site for future updates.

We are able to loosen restrictions thanks to the rapidly decreasing rate of COVID infection in Massachusetts, and importantly, to the high rate of vaccination among our community members. Thank you to all who have uploaded your proof of vaccination; if you have not yet received your vaccine, or not yet uploaded your documentation, Brandeis strongly encourages you to do so as soon as you can.

Enjoy the summer weather,
Dan Kim
Senior Vice President, Communications, Marketing and External Relations
