COVID-19 Guidance: Guidance and operational updates for Cummings School and its veterinary teaching hospitals


Current COVID-19 guidance and operational updates for the greater Cummings School community

These are challenging times—for everyone. Cummings School is committed to working with all community members to navigate the new realities posed by COVID-19.

We have put policies and procedures in place that prioritize the health and well-being of our students, faculty, staff, and clients visiting our teaching hospitals and clinics. Consistent with the university’s mission—to create and apply knowledge, foster active citizenship, and innovate in the face of complex challenges—we have pulled together to meet the challenges associated with COVID-19.

Cummings School has worked closely with Tufts University and local authorities to ensure compliance with the latest health and safety requirements as well as best practices. As we implement the new mandatory workplace safety standards and sector-specific protocols for responding to COVID-19, each of us plays an integral part in this work.

Our understanding of COVID-19 is still developing. As we learn more about the virus, and as additional data and guidance become available, our policies and plans will evolve.

The following information provides guidance to the greater Cummings School community on preparation and protocol pertaining to COVID-19.  Please check back regularly.
