MassBay COVID-19 Information


Updated January 22, 2024

Welcome to MassBay!

Several things have changed for this semester.

There is a new building in Framingham.

Parking is still free in all locations, however, you need to get a parking sticker from MassBay police. Please bring your driver's license and proof that you are MassBay student, faculty, or staff. At present, there is no requirement to wear masks on campus or to show proof of vaccination against COVID-19 to be admitted to buildings. There are some exceptions to this for Health Sciences students. MassBay will send out notice if COVID-19 worsens and restricted access once again becomes necessary. Most MassBay classes can be accessed as online or remote, with the exception of labs for the sciences and health sciences, and the vehicle bays at the Automotive Technology program at the Ashland campus.

As of May 15, 2023 students, employees, and guests are no longer required to present proof of vaccination to enter MassBay buildings. Anyone in the MassBay community who tests positive for COVID-19, has been exposed to a COVID-19 positive individual, or who is experiencing COVID-19 like symptoms should remain at home and fill out the COVID-19 Self Reporting form on the MassBayGo app.

Masks are encouraged but not required in our buildings. Free KN95 and surgical masks are available at entrances. Understanding the wearing of masks is a choice, we ask all members of the MassBay community to treat one another with compassion and respect, whether someone chooses to wear a mask or not. While masks are optional in general, you may be required to wear a mask for a set period of time after being exposed to COVID-19 or following your recovery from COVID-19, in accordance with current public health guidelines.
