IMPORTANT: Department of Public Health and Department of Higher Education Guidance for Institutions of Higher Education
The Massachusetts Department of Public Health and Department of Higher Education have just released “Public Health Guidance for Institutions of Higher Education Related to COVID-19” which apply to all public and private colleges and universities in the state, and can be found online at: https://www.mass.edu/covid-19/_documents/DPH%20and%20DHE%20Higher%20Ed%20Public%20Health%20COVID19%20Guidance_03.17.20.pdf
