WPI has returned to in-person learning, living, teaching, and working—guided, as always, by science and data. As we move forward together, we must continue to observe health and safety protocols to keep ourselves—and in turn, each other—as safe as possible and #ProtecttheHerd.
These are the latest updates as of November 24, 2021
WPI must continue to follow a mandate by the City of Worcester that individuals must wear face coverings when indoors in public/shared spaces. (Be sure to also wear a mask when visiting businesses in Worcester.)
WPI has new mask guidelines for inside the residence halls, updates about testing during the Thanksgiving break, and reminders about vaccinations. Read the latest updates.
As a result of updated federal vaccination requirements, all WPI employees (fully remote, on campus, or hybrid) must now be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. All employees must upload a copy of their vaccination card into Workday by January 18, 2022.
Students and employees are not required to test if they are away over the A/B Term or Thanksgiving breaks, but they are strongly encouraged to test if they remain in the area. Read more about testing during and returning from upcoming breaks.
