Special Note to Vendors doing business with The Rockefeller University:
All University employees and staff must participate in a COVID-19 Health Monitoring Program designed to keep the campus safe from community transmission of COVID-19. The risk of contracting COVID-19 while visiting the Rockefeller University campus is extremely low. To date, there has been no documented community transmission of COVID-19 on the RU campus.
Please note all vendors coming on campus must adhere to current University operations and policies including six foot social distancing, face covering, hand hygiene, medical monitoring and health self-assessment requirements to minimize the risk of transmission of COVID-19 on campus. The University expects vendors to comply with the US Department of State and CDC guidance regarding international travel and the NYS DOH Interim Guidance that calls for quarantine on travelers arriving in New York State following travel to states that have high rates of positive COVID tests. The restricted states are listed on-line. It is preferable that vendors send staff resources from the NYC region if possible, to perform any equipment installation and/or service on the University campus.
Vendors are reminded that upon completion of their service(s) with the University department, they MUST vacate campus; roaming throughout the campus to solicit additional business from any department is strictly prohibited.
Should any vendor on campus become ill while performing service on any University equipment, that vendor resource will immediately report that they are feeling ill to the onsite University Department Resource, which will then instruct the vendor to immediately cease all service and vacate the campus to seek appropriate external medical assistance. The department will email Occupational Health Service of the vendor illness in the event medical surveillance of the University Staff and disinfection of the equipment needs to be implemented by the University. Vendors must direct any notice regarding a positive COVID test result of any employee who accessed the University campus within the prior 14 days to the University Occupational Health Services, OHS@rockeller.edu .
