You should not come to campus if you have had any new and unusual symptoms of COVID-19 (not attributed to a previously known medical condition) in the last 24 hours. Most scientific activities will have a hybrid component for remote participation, with instructions sent to registered participants.  

If you test positive, follow the campus procedures described here. Note that onboarded visitors should follow staff guidelines.

Visitors are responsible for acquiring COVID tests for their personal use. The Institute has limited COVID tests available for workshop speakers only.
