2022–2023 COVID Policies

Updated August 9, 2022

At Walnut Hill, personal responsibility is at the forefront of our pandemic response strategy, which is consistent with the newest guidance and practice from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. We will continue to prioritize the health and safety of our community in the context of an in-person learning environment, and we will rely on our vaccination requirement; access to on-campus antigen testing; and personal symptom monitoring, masking, and quarantine for those who test positive or are experiencing symptoms in order to support these priorities.

We want to acknowledge that this fall semester marks the beginning of the third academic year of the COVID-19 pandemic, and our experiences managing the virus on the Walnut Hill campus have prepared us well for another year. We have been successful in preserving as much of the Walnut Hill experience as possible over the past two years largely because of this community’s commitment and shared accountability, and we thank you for partnering with us in that.
