Bay State College's Reopening Plan

A community that is both safe and productive.

  • Masks must be worn at all times.
  • Vaccination is required for all on-ground students.
  • To ensure social distancing, in-person class sizes will be reduced and public space capacity will be limited.
  • Classrooms will be sanitized throughout the day.
  • Hand-sanitizer stations are available throughout all campus buildings.

Our Top Priority

The health and safety of the entire Bay State College community is, and always will be, our most important concern. As we head into Spring semester, we continue to monitor all available information related to COVID-19 and its potential impact on our community. Our response adheres to guidelines of the Massachusetts Department of Health, the CDC, and the WHO.

We strongly encourage students to pay close attention to all Bay State College communications to assist in a safe and successful return to campus. We will update this page regularly as new information becomes available.

Contact Tracing

Bay State College’s Information Technology Department has upgraded the identification (I.D.) badge system to assist with contact tracing. During the first week of classes, all faculty, staff, and students will be issued a new ID card holder and Bay State College lanyard that will be required to be visibly worn around your neck at ALL times while on campus. In the event that someone on campus tests positive for COVID-19, the new system will allow us to notify any individuals who may have been exposed to the infected individual.

Classrooms: Continuous Sanitization

Classes will be scheduled to allow for extensive cleaning and sanitization. Classrooms will have sanitization materials located in the room for student usage.
