BOSTON – Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker wants all college and university students to get tested before they leave their Massachusetts campuses for the Thanksgiving break.
The Governor said he asked Massachusetts higher education institutions to make testing available to all students planning to leave campus for Thanksgiving within 72 hours of their departure.
If a student tests positive, they should plan to isolate on campus, said the Massachusetts Governor.
The Governor said Massachusetts returned to the Commonwealth from other state for Thanksgiving, should get tested as well or plan to quarantine for 14-days.
“Today we’re urging everybody to make a difficult choice this Thanksgiving. If we treat this year just like we treat every other Thanksgiving, it’s quite likely that it will trigger a significant spread,” said the Governor.
