Healthy Working From Home

The COVID-19 pandemic has temporarily changed many of the ways we teach, learn and work. Technology has kept us connected, but has also contributed to more screen time. Some of us may experience feelings of isolation as we strive to define a new, temporary "normal" and achieve work-life balance in the space we call home. It has never been more important to practice strategies that care for the mind and the body. We have complied a few articles to help you to create healthy work space and maximize work efficiency, reduce eye strain associated with screen use and ways to find balance and stay connected


COVID-19 Testing Program

NEC has developed a comprehensive program of symptom screening, testing, and contact tracing to ensure the health, wellness and safety of our community, in partnership with organizations and agencies such as the Boston Public Health Commission and the Broad Institute. Learn more about testing requirements and the current testing metrics.
