Periodic News Updates on the Coronavirus in Massachusetts

Welcome Back – member meeting on Wednesday the 26th


Dear Members,

Goodbye 2021….and hello 2022!  We hope you got a well-deserved break and are ready for what promises to be a challenging Spring semester.  

The University’s Covid safety protocols are not where the FSU would like them to be, especially in terms of testing, masking, and social distancing, but we are nonetheless returning to face-to-face teaching this semester.  Requests to temporarily move your class to a remote modality should be made through your Department Chair.   

Covid – get tested now and encourage students to do the same


Dear FSU Members,

As many of you know, universities across the region and country are requiring Covid testing and N95/KN95 masks (and social distancing) as higher ed institutions return to class during the Omicron spike.   The UMass system has decided not to implement any additional safety measures beyond what was in place for the Fall.

Update on Covid, Safety, and Spring 2022


Dear FSU Members,

A quick report on the FSU survey and discussions with the Administration about Covid, Safety, and Spring 2022.

TODAY- FSU Survey – COVID, Safety, and Spring Semester


Dear FSU Members,

Please fill out the FSU survey.  We would like to know your opinion with respect to campus opening and Covid safety protocols for the Spring semester.  The results will shape our discussion with the Administration.  The survey will be open until TODAY at NOON.

 (contact FSU or Steve Striffler for survey link information).
