As of February 3, 2020, there is one confirmed case of the 2019 Novel Coronavirus in Massachusetts. The Boston Public Health Commission (BPHC) and the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MA DPH) are monitoring the situation extremely closely and working with our medical team here and University partners to give you the latest information and ensure best practices are followed throughout the university.


The Centers for Disease Control has shared, “For the general American public, who are unlikely to be exposed to this virus, the immediate health risk from 2019-nCoV is considered low.”


We could be alerted to more cases in the U.S. in the days ahead. Public health officials recommend flu shots for all individuals and offer prevention guidelines here.
