Boston University is complying with Governor Baker's phased state recommendations for opening the MA economy, which  specifies a 14 day quarantine for people returning to Massachusetts, except that, beginning July 1, 2020, travelers from Rhode Island, Connecticut, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, New York, and New Jersey arriving in Massachusetts are exempt from this directive and need not self-quarantine for 14 days. Clinical rotation directors and the medical education office will work with M4s who are scheduled to start clinical work to ensure your clinical rotations and credits are not adversely affected.  Please reach out directly to Dean Jackson or any of the Assistant Deans in the SAO to discuss any specific concerns.
