The Task Force understands that the Emergency Operations Center is already working to support the OUS Summer Institute, which we also support. In addition, the Task Force recommends that Colgate welcome summer research students and Upstate Institute fellows to perform their work, if the work can be conducted in the United States. Students who will be living on campus over the summer should be vaccinated in order to facilitate their work within the laboratory or with others in the region. Ideally, Colgate should facilitate these vaccinations before the end of the Spring semester for students on campus so that students can leave at the conclusion of the semester and return without the need for a quarantine or experience other travel restrictions.

We recommend that students who are currently remote, and the OUS Summer Institute Scholars, are vaccinated prior to returning to campus, if possible, or receive vaccinations upon arrival to campus and then adhere to a period of restricted movement until their vaccination becomes effective.
