WPI Plans for Fall Opening Latest Information

WPI has established a Medical Advisory Board to provide expertise, scientific and medical insight, and advice as the university manages the health challenges associated with COVID-19. The board has regular meetings via Zoom, and will be called upon to answer questions and advise WPI’s President and senior leadership. The week of July 13, the board received an overview of WPI’s testing, isolation, and quarantine plans, and provided input to help the university address several questions about physical spaces on campus. They confirmed that WPI’s testing protocols are aggressive and appropriately designed to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in our campus community. The board will continue to provide insights from their own institutions, which gives us greater confidence in our health and safety plans.
