Health Requirements

Updated 1/6/23

Before Arriving on Campus

In order to access the MBL campus, each program participant (course participant or Whitman scientist), is required to show proof of vaccination or they must provide a point of contact from their home institution who can confirm their institutional COVID-19 vaccination exemption status. All program participants must provide this information on the MBL’s vaccination registry and COVID-19 safety acknowledgement and attestation at least 48 hours prior to arriving on campus.

COVID-19 Safety Acknowledgement and Attestation

All staff and program participants (excluding day visitors) accessing the MBL campus  are required to complete the MBL’s vaccination registry and COVID-19 safety acknowledgement and attestation.

The registry and attestation is included in the registration and decision reply forms for all MBL course participants, visiting, scientists, and any other campus visitors.  The COVID-19 Safety Acknowledgment and Attestation must be completed at least 48 hours prior to arrival.

The attestation must be completed as an online form, but for reference we have posted the PDF of the attestation on this page. The attestation affirms that the signer will comply with safety precautions, including:

  • Completion of vaccination registry
  • Mask requirements
  • Daily health screening
  • Testing, Contact Tracing, Quarantine, and Isolation
  • Accessing MBL Facilities
  • Campus visitors and guests
  • Ongoing Commitment, Inherent Risk and Non-Compliance
