If you have symptomsor you have had close exposure to a confirmed COVID-19 patient, schedule an appointment with counseling and health services (CHS)through your health portal or by calling 978.542.6413. These tests take place in a tent outside of the Ellison Campus Center.
If you have tested positive for COVID-19 within the last 90 days, do NOT participate in asymptomatic surveillance testing. Follow the directions provided to you by the health services contact tracers.
If you don't have any symptoms or a known COVID-19 exposure, schedule a weekly test starting with the first week of classes in the CoVerified app.
If you have symptoms or you've been exposed to a person with COVID-19, do not come to campus. Contact CHS by phone or through your health portal for a telemedicine appointment.
If you need to come to campus, we recommend that you schedule a test in the CoVerified app. Change your status on the app from “remote” to “return to campus” on the top right corner of the home screen.
If you receive a positive COVID test, notify health services as soon as possible, especially if they have been on campus within 5 days of symptoms or diagnosis. CHS can provide public health guidance, telehealth and we can reach out to your faculty if needed.

Be Ready to Help
Answer any phone calls from the university, which would start with “978-542”, and respond to emails, texts or messages sent through the health services portal
Ensure contact information is up to date in Navigator, including cell phone number
Be mindful and either write or mentally note all close contacts and places you’ve been, so that if you become positive you are able to quickly recall who else may have been exposed
