The information below is intended to assist Yale University units in creating their health and safety plans for on-campus programing for the summer of 2021. General guidance is as follows:
Health and safety plans for summer programs or activities will be reviewed by the COVID Review Team (CRT) and approved by the Provost. Summer programs or activities that do not provide health and safety plans will not be approved.
Submitted plans will be reviewed on a rolling basis after receipt. Please submit your plan by April 16, 2021.
Please construct your plan based on current public health conditions and Yale policies in effect, with the understanding that they may change prior to the summer.
Address each applicable element for review and feedback by the CRT. The submission form outlining your plan will be submitted to the CRT (CovidReviewTeam@yale.edu). CRT members are Nancy Loucks (email@example.com), COVID Program Administrator; Pete Reinhardt (firstname.lastname@example.org), Director of Environmental Health and Safety; and Kate Couturier (email@example.com), consultant from the Public Health Advisory Committee. They are available to answer questions as you develop your plan. If the form asks for information that has been previously provided, you may attach a copy of the relevant document(s) (e.g., email announcements to the school community, other planning documents, etc.) in the file attachment section at the end of the form.
Yale’s COVID-19 website provides resources and information that will be helpful in developing plans, including a description of university actions being taken to support the health and safety of the campus community. Cathy Jackson (firstname.lastname@example.org) from the Office of Facilities is also available to consult during the plan development process with regard to room occupancies and room ventilation. Additionally, detailed guidance on specific issues is available through the links in the Resource Section below.
