Springfield College is following guidelines shared by the Massachusetts Commissioner of Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. FAQs, community messages, safety precautions, and policies can be found on our website and will be updated regularly.
The Springfield College mask policy follows the best practices as set forth by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Staff, faculty, students, and guests who are fully vaccinated are not required to wear a mask on campus. Those who are not fully vaccinated must wear a mask at all times both indoors and outdoors.
In the spirit of Humanics, we ask you to respect the wishes of your close community members and act accordingly within individual departments, offices, and buildings.
The COVID-19 Dashboard updates will be provided once per week on Wednesday during summer 2021. The information posted is the best available information Springfield College has at the time. The number of tests administered each week can vary based on testing needs as well as the capacity of the Broad Institute to process all tests. The vast majority of test results are received within 24 hours of the samples reaching the lab (24-36 hours from specimen collection); occasionally the Broad has maintenance or other issues that result in delays, though those have been very limited. A very small percentage of tests are not able to be processed by the lab and those individuals are retested.

Celebrating our success in Fall 2020
Bringing students back to campus this fall was framed around creating a safe campus that felt true to the Springfield College experience. Our faculty and staff worked tirelessly over the summer and into the fall semester to make this possible. Our amazing students worked just as hard, following the guidelines that were put in place while adjusting on the go as we moved through the last three-plus months. This video provides a glimpse into the campus experience and how everyone helped put to use our technology, resources, and collective grit to deliver classroom instruction that maintains our high standard of quality while adhering to CDC and state regulations. Thank you Springfield College!
