Smart + Safe
MIT has already implemented new protocols for building access, and these have been in place during the ramp-up of research on campus over the summer. These protocols include:
- Requirements for viral testing
- A daily health attestation
- Mandatory Environment, Health, and Safety training
- Social distancing
- Requirements to wear an MIT Sloan-issued face mask while on campus.
Note that as the circumstances of the pandemic evolve, we will all need to be flexible in response to those changing conditions. We will join with MIT Medical to monitor our collective health status throughout the semester and will communicate any needed adjustments to campus procedures as quickly as possible. More information and updates on COVID-19 at MIT can be found at MIT Medical.
City of Cambridge Face Coverings Order (updated 9.25.2020)
Cambridge issued an emergency order requiring that face coverings be worn in all public places, businesses and common areas of residential buildings. The order applies to everyone over the age of two years old, with exceptions in alignment with guidelines provided by the Centers for Disease Control or Massachusetts Department of Public Health. Violations may be punishable by a $300 fine.
