SLS Return-to-Campus Checklist

  • You are required to complete the COVID-19 Hygiene Best Practices training before your first day on-site, if you have not done so previously.  Feel free to watch again as a refresher.
  • Surveillance testing is now optional for vaccinated staff.
  • Be prepared to return to campus.
    • Plan how you will get to campus. Review the Parking & Transportation’s commute toolkit.
    • Will you drive to campus? Make sure you have a parking permit. 
    • Consider what items you need to bring with you from home:
      • A face-covering (optional but recommended)
      • Your physical and/or mobile ID card (the only way to gain access to a SLS building is with your ID. Keys will no longer work to enter the building). To access Law School buildings, you must have your physical ID card or mobile ID (on the Stanford Mobile App).  You can also download the Stanford Mobile app and request a Mobile ID Key here, which will give you a digital ID card that can be used on the access control system.
      • Your keys (if you have an office, or wish to access the breakroom)
      • Your laptop (if applicable), battery/chargers
      • Any necessary paper files you may need
      • Your lunch (eateries are open on campus)
  • If you have an IT or Facilities related need, make an appointment with either or both departments 48 hours in advance of when you will be on-campus for work – use this form to do so.
  • Is your office key battery low (the + – symbols in the battery icon flash when low)?
    • Facilities can assist with making sure your key battery is active and your ID card is programmed properly for building access.
  • You are required to report your vaccination status on Health Check.  If you have received your booster, please update Health Check.
    • If you are fully vaccinated, upload an image of your vaccination documentation in Health Check, including your vaccination date and manufacturer. Once you take these steps, you no longer need to report your daily health symptoms in Health Check (unless you become symptomatic or receive a positive COVID test result).
    • If you are not fully vaccinated you are required to undertake regular surveillance testing and report your health symptoms daily using Health Check.
    • Unvaccinated faculty, staff, postdoctoral scholars including those who have received a medical or religious accommodation are required to test twice weekly for those working on-site four or more days per week. Individuals on-site three days or fewer per week are required to test once a week.
    • Vaccination policy details can be viewed on Health Alerts. Health Check is the only approved channel through which the university asks for faculty/staff vaccination status.  Health Check FAQ.
  • The university will continue to provide free COVID-19 testing, with results automatically reported to Health Check. The surveillance testing program continues to be available on a voluntary basis for members of the Stanford community.
  • Face coverings. Aligning with county and state guidance, with certain exceptions, face coverings are no longer required but will continue to be strongly recommended on-site regardless of vaccination status. Cal-OSHA’s requirement for unvaccinated individuals to mask indoors was also lifted.

Additional steps to stay safe

In addition to the hygiene training and Health Check, there are other actions you can take to keep the workplace safe regardless of your vaccination status:

  • If you are feeling ill, stay home and contact your manager and follow your department protocols when you will be absent from work.
  • Practice good hygiene by washing your hands frequently and for the recommended 20 seconds.
  • If you plan to travel before returning to on-site work, verify travel requirements through the Centers for Disease Control by contacting Stanford’s Global Risk office as testing and quarantine requirements are continually changing.
