UPDATED 11/04/21: Update to Vendors and Equipment Maintenance Personnel, External CNF Users; and Winter Lab Closure
Update to vendors and equipment maintenance personnel 11/04/2021
Any vendor or equipment maintenance support person who will be on campus for less than one week must show either proof of vaccination (CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Record card or equivalent) or proof of a valid negative COVID-19 test no more than 72 hours before arrival (Antigen test no more than 6 hours before arrival). They do not need to enroll in the Daily check or surveillance testing.
Please work with Stacy to have your vendors proof of vaccination or proof of a valid negative COVID-19 test confirmed. Proof must be shown in person, NOT EMAILED !. We will not store the proof but only note that it was shown and visually confirmed. Stacy Clementson has taken the necessary training to identify a valid COVID -19 test and acceptable proof of vaccination. Phil, Rebecca and Tom will also be taking the training in the coming weeks.
Vendors who do not show proof of being fully vaccinated or proof of a valid negative COVID-19 test will not be allowed on Campus. Please refer to the CNF COVID-19 Polices for Vendors and Equipment Maintenance Personnel.
Update to external users 10/29/2021
Effective immediately for CNF external users:
Cornell’s COVID-19 public health requirements are continuously being updated to more closely mirror those of New York State. Likewise, CNF’s implementation of those requirements is evolving.
Accordingly, all external CNF users are now required to present proof of vaccination (CDC or WHO COVID-19 Vaccination Record card or equivalent) or proof of having received an exemption (either medical or religious) from vaccination provided by their current employer in order to be allowed on Campus. For CNF, this is true regardless of length of stay. With this change, external users who show proof of vaccination no longer need to enroll in the Daily Check and are not required to participate in surveillance testing. External users with an exemption must be enrolled in the Daily Check and participate in surveillance testing twice a week.
External CNF users who do not show proof of being fully vaccinated or proof of having received an exemption will not be allowed on Campus even if they have proof of a negative COVID test. Please refer to the CNF COVID-19 Policies for External Users
If you are an external user presently using the CNF please contact Stacy Clementson at firstname.lastname@example.org to have your proof of vaccination or exemption confirmed as soon as possible. Proof must be shown in person, NOT EMAILED! We will not store the proof but only note that it was shown and visually confirmed. If you are an external user presently using the CNF and do not have proof of being vaccinated or a valid exemption, please complete your work and leave campus.
Update to users 9/30/2021
Please also remember that starting December 15, 2021 the CNF cleanroom will be temporarily closed in order to rebuild our main air handler and replace over 450 HEPA filters. Tentatively, CNF will be closed from December 15, 2021 to February 1, 2022. Please begin to take this into account in your planning of your projects. We will keep you informed of any changes.
