Campus Visitor and Vendor Information
The MBL’s Efforts to Promote a Culture of Health and Safety
The MBL is committed to maintaining its mission-critical and distinctive academic and research programs, while working to protect the health of our staff, faculty, students, visiting scientists, visitors, and our broader local community.
In close collaboration with the University of Chicago and the University of Chicago Medicine, we implement a wide range of health and well-being practices, and are committed to creating a campus culture focused on shared responsibility for protecting the health and safety of every member of our community.
We act in accordance with the guidelines of public health agencies at the federal, state, and local levels.
Campus Visitors and COVID-19
Non-residential visitors, including vendors/contractors, must abide by the MBL’s Health Policies and Protocols listed below.
- Conducted a daily health screening on the day of your visit and prior to visiting.
- Follow the MBL’s Protocol for Addressing Confirmed or Suspected COVID-19 Exposures
- Follow the MBL’s current Guidance for Using Masks in MBL Work Areas
The COVID-19 pandemic has created substantial individual and community health risks. Even with extensive planning and focus on the community’s health and safety, the MBL cannot eliminate these risks. Together we can try to reduce risk, but only if each of us commits to fostering a culture of shared responsibility for our individual and collective health and safety. The MBL thus expects every person who comes to the MBL campus, whether as a staff member, student, volunteer, contractor, or visitor, to adopt precautions designed to mitigate the risk of viral transmission.
