MEDFORD, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Officials at Tufts University announced final exams are to be conducted virtually starting on Friday night as a precautionary measure amidst increases in COVID-19 cases nationwide.
According to an article from The Tufts Daily, a student-run newspaper, school officials sent an email to students urging them to leave campus as soon as possible for winter break to limit the density of people on school grounds.
The email also announced that COVID-19 vaccine booster shots will be required for students, faculty and staff for the coming spring semester, adding Tufts to a growing list of Greater Boston schools who have made a similar decision.
