Commit @ IHP Changes
-June 15, 2021-
We want to thank the Institute community for their adherence to Commit @ IHP. The community’s collective commitment has resulted in maintaining a healthy and safe learning environment.
We are now excited to announce updated changes in the capacity and health and safety protocols. These changes will be effective on Tuesday, June 15, 2021 consistent with similar changes being implemented across Mass General Brigham. For the remainder of the Summer 2021 semester, members of the IHP community must adhere to these changes based on if they are vaccinated or unvaccinated — or if they make the personal decision to remain masked and maintain social distance. Consistent with the Institute’s Core Values, we will respect the individual decision of each community member.
What remains in place:
- Masks are still required to enter all buildings.
- Continued use of the COVID PASS app and check-in process.
- Institute-issued masks must still be worn in all common spaces including classrooms, labs, and the IMPACT Practice Center.
- Hand hygiene remains an important element to keeping everyone healthy.
- The Summer 2021 academic schedule will remain in place for the remainder of the semester.
What has changed:
- Social distancing is no longer required except as noted below while eating.
- The capacity of each room now returns to pre-COVID levels with everyone masked.
- Eating on campus:
- Vaccinated individuals can remove their masks and not social distance.
- Unvaccinated individuals can remove their masks and must maintain six feet social distance.
- Classrooms and labs:
- Faculty can now have students move freely around rooms that were previously separated for small group work. If chairs are moved into another room, please return them to the original location at the end of the class meeting.
- After the end of the Summer 2021 semester, all furniture and instructional equipment on campus prior to the pandemic will be returned to each classroom and lab.
- Visitors and Guests:
- The capacity of rooms has returned to pre-COVID levels, and guests can now come to campus.
- All guests must follow the Universal Mask Policy while on campus.
- Campus Services staff will coordinate with you to determine the total number of individuals who can be in each room.
The community’s collective commitment to maintaining a healthy and safe environment has contributed to reaching this milestone to begin the process of returning the campus to pre-COVID usage.
If you have any questions or need additional information please contact Campus Services.
