Learning and living at Brandeis are different during the pandemic. Yet the university’s mission and values — everything that makes Brandeis a unique place to learn and grow — remain firmly in place.

Shared Responsibility

Our plans to reduce COVID-19 transmission and keep Brandeis open for an in-person learning and living experience depends upon the entire community adhering to stringent social distancing, personal hygiene, and wellness protocols, including completing the Daily Health Assessment, submitting regular testing samples, following proper mask-wearing protocols, and maintaining a six-foot distance in learning and social situations.

Violations of health and safety protocols will lead to disciplinary actions that may include suspension, restriction from campus or removal from campus housing.

Transparency and Communication

A lot may change in the coming months, with continued transmission of the virus even as the vaccine becomes more widely available. Every member of our resilient community should be ready to adjust to address new concerns should they unexpectedly arise.

We are committed to keeping you up-to-date with any necessary changes as they happen. You can see a snapshot of the university’s testing numbers on our COVID-19 Dashboard, which is updated regularly based on our daily testing data and state data. We also will continue to communicate policy or protocol changes to all members of the Brandeis community.

Despite the unavoidable uncertainty, we are committed to ensuring that students’ instructional, research, and co-curricular opportunities remain as rich and robust as ever.
