To maintain the healthiest campus possible, all graduate and undergraduate students are under the COVID policy purview of the Student Health Center at Brandeis University.

The Student Health Center provides guidance to students on all matters related to COVID-19. Students who are symptomatic and test positive for SARS-CoV2, the virus that causes COVID-19, are asked to follow the recommendations of the Health Center regarding isolation and return to class.

Health Center providers will recommend best practices for preventing spread of illness to vulnerable members of the campus and Waltham communities. Students who do not follow Health Center recommendations may be reported to the Dean of Students Office and subject to disciplinary action.
