Because of consistent improvements in COVID-19 test positivity rates, UMass Amherst lowered its operational posture from Elevated to Guarded on March 24. To sustain this operating posture, our entire community must remain vigilant by following vital public health protocols including social distancing, mask-wearing, and socializing within your bubble.
These local resources can help UMass community members meet basic needs during the COVID-19 pandemic. If you are a student in need of emergency resources or support services, contact the Dean of Students Office.
UMatter at UMass is an initiative intended to affirm the UMass values of care, compassion and active engagement.
