As COVID-19 cases fluctuate in our community, locally and nationally, Harvard University Health Services (HUHS) has updated our policies in response to and with guidance from the CDC and the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. Thank you for your flexibility and patience during this time. If there are additional recommendations, we will continue to monitor and update this page as needed.
Case support and isolation procedures are used for people with confirmed positive cases of COVID-19. Close contact and quarantine procedures are used for exposed close contacts of confirmed cases of COVID-19. If you are a patient who is considered by your healthcare provider as being in a moderate to severe immunocompromised state, this requires you to take precautions that many other people do not have to consider in your daily life.
