At the conclusion of the Bristol Community College’s Spring 2023 semester, on May 18, 2023, students and employees will no longer need to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination as a condition of in-person entry, participation, enrollment or employment.

Students attending the Summer 2023 and Fall 2023 semesters will not have a COVID-19 vaccination requirement. Specific groups of students and employees may be required to be vaccinated against COVID-19 as a condition of their clinical or external placements.

Although Bristol is lifting this requirement, in conjunction with the 15 Massachusetts Community Colleges, the college will remain vigilant in monitoring health guidance and practicing important safety measures including:  

  • Wearing masks or face coverings indoors at any Bristol Community College location when COVID-19 transmission rates are high.   
  • High-quality masks and COVID-19 test kits will continue to be available at all college locations. 
  • Encouraging our community members to stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccinations and boosters.
