Safe on Campus: Considerations and Checklists

PURPOSE STATEMENT. The purpose of this document is to provide a comprehensive overview of certain considerations and checklists that colleges and universities may want to use as guidance in developing their own individual plan to safely reopen their campus for the fall semester and, should the public health data require, for developing contingencies for scaling back campus operations. Institutions may also use this document as a basis for further conversations with their local health departments.

This document builds upon the reopening plans that have been developed by other states, including Connecticut, New York, and Michigan. It is not intended to be prescriptive or establish a standard of care. Rather, because of the incredible diversity of the colleges and universities in Massachusetts, a specific provision identified in this document may work for one institution but may not be applicable or feasible for another institution.
