Updated: February 3, 2023 at 8:55 a.m.

The University has been in Phase III+ since September 28th, 2020. Phase III+ operations continue to have the goal of minimizing 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 and full conduct of business activities on campus.

Access to campus is restricted to authorized University and Tri-Institutional personnel. Rockefeller IDs must be used to enter (and re-enter) campus and must be displayed while on campus.

Access for third-party service/support personnel and/or external collaborators must be for business purposes only and arranged and approved in advance of their arrival. Requests for campus access should be submitted on-line using the MSForms request. All guests/visitors are expected to comply with University COVID policies.

RU/HHMI employees and students:

  • Must be fully vaccinated as condition of working on-site.
  • Employees/students who tested positive for COVID and/or who have a child in the CFC who tested positive for COVID within the last 10 days must complete the RUHealthy self-assessment, and follow any resulting instructions from University Healthy and Wellness (UHW).
  • Are strongly encouraged to participate at least weekly in the University pRT-PCR molecular assay-based COVID testing if they work on site at any time during that week. Testing using the RUStrong program is available twice a week (Tuesdays and Thursdays). If testing is done through a third-party company instead of RUStrong, timely, written documentation of the testing should be provided to UHW.
  • Please see the Policy on Face Covering for details and exceptions.
  • University personnel are permitted to have in-person meetings; food/drinks are permitted. If you have questions about the appropriate number of meeting attendees for a given room, please email restart@rockefeller.edu for guidance

The Rockefeller response team meets 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 III+ Restart and Guidance website (VPN required) for further information about Phase III+ policies and operations.

If you have questions about the University’s preparedness and response activities, please send an email to restart@rockefeller.edu.
