Dear Regis community,

The situation around the COVID-19 (coronavirus) remains highly fluid and the university administration has worked diligently throughout spring break to protect the safety and well-being of the Regis community around the world. There have been no reported or suspected cases at Regis College and the risk of COVID-19 in Massachusetts remains low.

Members of the administration have been in constant contact with local and national health officials. Due to the risks related to COVID-19, the governor of Massachusetts has asked institutions of higher education to cancel all organized international travel for the foreseeable future. Consequently, all Regis College international travel is now cancelled until further notice.

Further, in an effort to reduce the risks related to COVID-19, Regis is asking everyone (students, faculty, and staff) to complete a Travel Registry form for international travel since February 18, 2020, and any upcoming personal international travel. Providing travel information is a voluntary decision. Any information provided will be shared on a strict need-to-know basis for community health protection (e.g. disclosed to Regis College Health Services, the Center for Global Connections).

Regis students studying abroad this semester in Italy have been advised to return to the U.S. and complete the semester online from their homes. Per CDC guidelines, a 14-day self-quarantine period is required for all travelers from current Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Level 2 and 3 Travel Warning countries. Travelers from Level 2 or 3 countries should self-quarantine at their home or off-campus residence for 14 days, monitor their symptoms and contact Health Services before returning to any Regis facility. If symptoms occur, individuals should seek medical attention.

Over the break, Regis facilities crews have conducted extensive cleaning of high-touch surfaces in buildings and residence halls. To protect our community, we strongly urge frequent handwashing, avoid touching your face, maintain social space, and stay home if you are experiencing any flu-like symptoms.

The university encourages you to stay informed about this virus. Regular updates can be found on the World Health Organization, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Mass. Department of Public Health websites.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact Regis Health Services at health.services@regiscollege.edu or 781.768.7290. We will continue to post university updates and other information on our COVID-19 (coronavirus) Information page.

Sincerely,

The official Regis College shield
