COVID-19 Information, Health & Safety

What’s Suffolk doing to keep our buildings clean and disinfected?

Suffolk’s service provider, ABM Industries, cleans campus buildings on a regular schedule consistent with reducing the presence of COVID-19. There are hand sanitizer stations throughout campus and wipe/hand sanitizer stations in all shared spaces.

What resources are available for Suffolk community members who need care/support?

The Counseling, Health & Wellness Center is open and operational. Medical and counseling services are provided in person or using HIPAA-secure telemedicine and remote access technology. Students may schedule private appointments with providers. Currently, respiratory illnesses will be treated using telemedicine. The Interfaith Center, Suffolk Cares, the Dean of students for SBS & CAS, the Dean of Students for Law, as well as advising and other student academic services are all in full operation.

COVID Testing

Resident students and student athletes are required to participate in weekly COVID-19 testing. Students who are exempt from vaccination due to a medical contraindication or sincere religious belief must wear face coverings and participate in weekly PCR testing if they are on-campus at least once a week.

It’s our collective responsibility as a community to respect these guidelines on campus and off: becoming fully vaccinated or receiving an exemption, wearing face coverings, complying with testing requirements, and reporting symptoms. Together, we can do our part to interrupt the spread of the virus, protect our community, and maintain a healthy and inspiring environment for all.
