Current Campus Guidelines & Protocols

These are the latest updates as of May 6, 2022

  • MASKS: Masks are optional—but recommended—indoors for all WPI students, faculty, staff, visitors, with a few exceptions; get all the details here. The community is encouraged to wear a high-quality mask indoors to avoid COVID, colds, and flu—especially if you are planning to attend Commencement. 

  • TESTING: As of May 9, routine COVID-19 testing is optional for all members of the WPI community. Anyone may continue to test weekly, or more often, as they choose. The testing location will also move as of May 16. Get more details here.

Please respect others’ needs and choices regarding masking, and continue to be thoughtful, careful, and supportive of all others in our community. Keep a mask handy in case a friend or colleague asks you to wear one.
