Pilot COVID-19 Screening Program

Yale is providing free viral testing for all faculty, staff, and graduate and professional students who will be on campus for the fall semester. For testing requirements for different groups, please review the COVID-19 testing policies found on the Health & Safety Guidelines page.

Service Providers and Sales Vendors

Yale strongly discourages any vendor sales representatives from visiting campus. 

All vendors performing service on-site at Yale must agree to comply with Yale’s Vendor Site Access requirements. Among other procedures described in the requirements, all vendors will be required to check in via Yale’s contractor/vendor daily check-in application upon arrival to campus.

Note: If any on-site duties are subcontracted, it is the employer’s responsibility to ensure subcontractors have appropriate training.
