Massachusetts, in particular Worcester County, continues to report new positive COVID-19 cases. Testing provides data that the University uses to limit the number of students placed in isolation or quarantine or to quickly identify emerging outbreaks of COVID-19. Our goal is to provide students with as normal and an enjoyable Assumption experience as possible, but we need your help by complying with the testing protocol.
EXPECTATION OF STUDENTS TO ATTEND CLASSES
Faculty have reported increased student requests for remote instruction accommodations. Please know that only those students who test positive for COVID-19 or, who after completing the symptom tracker, are instructed not to attend classes by Health Services, may be considered for a remote instruction accommodation. Students may not self-quarantine unless they are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms. If a student is not ill or experiencing symptoms, they are expected to be present in their classes.
A word of gratitude to all members of our community who continue to do their part to thwart the spread of COVID-19 on campus. We realize that this continues to be a challenging period for many, but know that the University is committed to providing students the memorable Assumption experience they deserve.
