Regis is committed to promoting the health and safety of all members of our community: students, faculty and staff. Recognizing the evolving nature of COVID-19, these measures have been implemented and guided with an emphasis on the common good of the campus community.
All students, faculty, and staff who live, learn, and work on campus are strongly encouraged to be vaccinated for COVID-19. This recommendation can be met with COVID-19 vaccines having FDA (Food and Drug Administration), EUA (emergency use authorization) and/or WHO (World Health Organization EUL (emergency use listing) approval.
While Regis no longer requires COVID-19 vaccination, it may still be mandated at many off-site clinical and preceptorship sites. Students must comply with the COVID-19 vaccination requirement(s) imposed by their internship, clinical, fieldwork placement, or external site. Failure to comply with these requirements may prevent students from making academic progression.
The Regis campus is a mask optional environment, except at all times in the Regis College Dental Center and in the Center for Health and Wellness when seeing a provider for a sick visit or if required to wear a mask per Massachusetts Department of Public Health COVID-19 isolation or exposure guidelines.
Regis warmly welcomes visitors to campus, including students’ families, prospective students and their families, external partners, contractors, etc.
If you have been exposed to COVID-19 or are experiencing symptoms, please refer to the Massachusetts Department of Public Health for guidance on testing.
COVID-19 tests are available through the Center for Health and Wellness. This requires a visit with a clinician and will be billed to your insurance. Patients need to be aware of their health insurance coverage including the Regis student health insurance plan and what restrictions may apply.
For those regularly visiting, living, or working on campus, Health Services recommends keeping a supply of rapid at-home COVID-19 tests on hand so that you may self-administer a test should you develop any new symptoms or have a known exposure.
Students, faculty, and staff who test positive for COVID-19 can contact the Center for Health and Wellness at 781.768.7290 to report their positive test result and receive further guidance from a member of the healthcare team, though it is not required.
Students, faculty, and staff who are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 should contact the Center for Health and Wellness to schedule an appointment or speak to a member of the healthcare team.
Students, faculty, and staff who test positive for COVID-19 should isolate in accordance with the latest guidelines from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health.
Residential students will self-manage their isolation and can choose to isolate in their on-campus room or at home.
Wellness Housing is available only to residential students who have tested positive for COVID-19 and are required to isolate, but cannot do so in their assigned room and have a home address of more than 300 miles from Regis.
All individuals who test positive for COVID-19 are responsible for notifying their own close contacts.
