All staff who can work at home should continue to do so. Only with an explicit request from a supervisor should a staff member return to campus. For more information, review COVID-19 Workplace Guidance.
As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, Yale University has taken steps to reduce the number of people on campus and to shift certain work off-site, to practice social distancing. As a result, we ask our valued suppliers to observe updated guidelines on the Suppliers Guidelines page.
Review guidance on campus packages and mail delivery, supply orders and delivery of products, IT equipment, contracts, account sales representatives, procurement (including PCards), and travel on the COVID-19 Operational Guidance page.
