Campus Guidelines

  • Face Masks: Optional on campus, but may be requested in certain classrooms, offices and spaces. Beyond campus, the City of Waltham has issued an updated mask advisory
  • Vaccination and Boosters: All members of the Bentley community are required to be up to date on their COVID-19 vaccination and boosted once eligible.
  • Testing: The screening testing center is closed for the summer.  
  • Self-Checks: All community members and guests should self-monitor for symptoms of COVID-19 on a daily basis using the COVID-19 daily checklist.

Isolation and Quarantine Guidelines

Those who test positive for COVID-19, regardless of vaccination status, are required to isolate for five full days. If on day 6, you display no symptoms of COVID-19 and have been fever-free for 24-hours without the aid of medication, you may exit isolation but must wear a mask in all settings for five full days. Faculty or staff who test positive should notify Dan Battle at

Those who are up to date on their COVID-19 vaccination, including having received a booster shot, OR those who are within the 90-day period since testing positive for COVID-19 do not require quarantine after being identified as a close contact if displaying no symptoms. For those who are unvaccinated or not up to date on vaccination, meaning you are vaccinated but have not received a booster, you must quarantine for five days following exposure to a positive case.
