COVID-19 Interim Requirements for Commercial Service Providers and Contractors Conducting Work on the Colgate University Campus

Barring religious or medical exemption, all service providers and contractors should be fully vaccinated prior to coming to campus, including vaccine boosters for all eligible individuals. All service providers and contractors should refer to colgate.edu/colgatetogether for current campus guidance for face coverings, and we strongly recommend that all service providers and contractors test for COVID-19 prior to coming to campus, regardless of vaccination status. All service providers and contractors who are ill (including but not limited to symptoms commonly associated with COVID-19 and other communicable diseases) must cancel their visit to campus, regardless of vaccination status.

All commercial service providers and contractors working on campus should also routinely practice handwashing and good hygiene practices. In addition, contractors should continuously self-monitor for symptoms (including cough, fever, or difficulty breathing). It is the responsibility of all contractors to inform their employer if they are unable to continue working because they feel ill.
