Handling COVID19

“Take care of your body. Take deep breaths, stretch or meditate. Try to eat healthy, well-balanced meals, exercise regularly, get plenty of sleep and avoid alcohol and drugs.”

“Connect with others. Share your concerns and how you are feeling with a friend or family member. Maintain healthy relationships.”

Many of us are working remotely this semester and facing new challenges. While the situation continues to evolve, below are some resources that can help you navigate the effects of COVID19.

I’m a TA this semester. What should I do?

Taking a class remotely is hard enough; teaching can be even more challenging. We encourage you to have conversations with your professors about teaching – dREFS can help you plan out these conversations to voice your concerns in a non-confrontational way. MIT also has resources on teaching remotely here.

What are the grading options this semester?

MIT is offering several grading options this semester, including Graded, PE/NE, and Listener. Depending upon your requirements (are you taking this class for quals, or to fulfill credits, etc.), you may want to use different options. A detailed report on grading policy is available here.

How often do I need to get tested to be on campus?

As of this writing, if you are on campus less than 4 days per week, you must get tested once per week; if you are on campus more often, you must get tested twice per week. MIT’s “CovidPass” system is the central resource for managing testing.
