Updates on COVID-19
Updated: October 27, 2020 at 5:23 p.m.
Rockefeller’s Phase III+ operations, which allow for further expansion of research activities, will start at 6 am on September 28. The goal of Phase III+ is to adjust the current Phase III guidelines, in order to continue to minimize risk to the safety and health of all personnel and likelihood of community transmission of SARS-CoV-2 on campus, while allowing up to 100% occupancy levels in the Laboratories.
Access to campus will continue to be restricted to those personnel who have been authorized by their lab head or supervisor to be on campus. Access for third-party service/support personnel must be arranged and approved in advance of their arrival. Rockefeller IDs must be used to enter (and re-enter) campus and must be displayed while on campus. Face coverings or masks must be worn at all times while on campus except in single-occupancy offices.
Our top priority remains the health and well-being of our community. The Rockefeller response team is meeting regularly to evaluate conditions and make decisions that are informed by guidance from city, state and national agencies in addition to input from key University stakeholders.
Please see the Phase II and Phase III Restart and Guidance website (VPN required) for further information about Phase II and Phase III. Additional information is available in the Restart FAQ.
If you have questions about the University’s preparedness and response activities, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
