What You Need to Know Now

These are the latest updates as of June 22, 2022

  • TESTING: For the rest of the summer 

  • COVID testing is not required for students, faculty, and staff
  • WPI will offer rapid antigen testing (tests administered on campus or at home that provide results in 15 minutes) for individuals who: 
  • are experiencing COVID-like symptoms 
  • had close contact with someone with COVID-19 at least 5 days prior. 
  • Rapid antigen testing will be offered at the Hackfeld lot from 10 to 11 am Monday through Thursday.
  • WPI will not offer PCR testing (tests that are processed off-campus and return results in 24-72 hours) for the remainder of the summer.  


  • REPORTING: If you test positive for COVID through an at-home test or another mechanism outside of WPI’s on-campus testing, please fill out a positive case form


  • MASKING: With the local surge of COVID cases, we strongly recommend using masks when in any indoor spaces on campus. 

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.

Additional adjustments to our operations may be needed based on updated guidance and public health trends. We recommend you check back regularly for the latest updates.
