NIST Visitor and Contractor Protocols for Mitigating COVID-19 Exposure on NIST Campuses

NIST is committed to protecting the health and safety of our staff and others coming onto our campuses by implementing measures consistent with guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to mitigate COVID-19 exposure. To that end, any NIST staff member (referred to below as “sponsor”) bringing visitors or contractors who will be performing work in NIST workspaces onto campus is required to provide the following information to them in advance of the visit. Further, while visitors and contractors are on campus, the sponsor must ensure they comply with the requirements in place to mitigate COVID-19 exposure.
