COVID-19 vaccination policies for contractors, suppliers, and consultants – COVID-19 Resource Center – University of Rochester

Beginning November 15, the University will require that all personnel employed by or affiliated with contractors, suppliers, and consultants, and who perform work indoors on the University’s campuses and properties be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, or undergo weekly COVID-19 testing the week before and each week during their time on campus. A separate requirement specifically for Medical Center and affiliate facilities has already been put in place and became effective September 27. This requirement has since been updated to also allow for weekly testing unless vaccination is required by applicable regulations.

The full details are available on the University Facilities website, along with a printout to be used for required COVID-19 symptom screenings.

A letter is being delivered to all contractors, suppliers, and consultants on how to adhere to this November 15 deadline, and all must attest that their contract staff assigned to work indoors on the University’s campuses and properties will comply with this requirement. The University may, in its sole discretion, consider exceptions to this requirement for emergency work.
