IAS Campus Interior

Covid-19 Updates

Update: Governor Murphy announced a further reduction in indoor gatherings to a new limit of 10 people, effective November 17. 

We are asking our campus community to be mindful of this new restriction and to limit indoor gatherings to 10 people or less, regardless of the number of seats in a room, remember to wear face coverings, and stay six feet apart.

Travel Advisory
The Institute requires all individuals who leave the state of New Jersey for more than 24 hours to complete the Travel Questionnaire upon their return. After submission of the questionnaire, please wait for clearance before coming to campus.  

Travelers and residents entering New Jersey from any U.S. state or territory beyond the immediate region (New York, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, and Delaware) should self-quarantine for 14 days: New Jersey FAQs.

CAMPUS REOPENING
As of September 8, the Institute campus has partially reopened, and Faculty, Members, and a limited number of essential staff may request access to work in their offices.

Individuals requesting access to campus must complete the Health Screening Form each morning before coming to campus, which must be approved by the IAS Covid-19 Response Team. 

We have created a series of Return-to-Campus guides that features more in-depth information than shown on the website and should be consulted before coming to campus.

To help ensure the safety of our community, we ask that you continue to:

  • Maintain physical distancing practices: stay 6 feet apart at all times.
  • Wear masks or face coverings. Face coverings are required in all indoor spaces on campus, including the laundry room and the activities center, and outdoors if social distancing isn't possible.
  • Practice safe habits such as hand washing and avoiding mass gatherings.
  • Adhere to our “no handshake” policy.

 

RETURN-TO-CAMPUS GUIDES
We have created a series of Return-to-Campus guides as a resource for the IAS community to help navigate returning to IAS during the partial reopening. The guides feature more in-depth information than shown on the website, and should be consulted before coming to campus. All current and future guides may be found at this link.
