Visitor Protocol

Effective 8/1/21 at 8:00 a.m.
Visitors (both indoors and outdoors) for one-time visits and/or recurring meetings/events on campus are permitted. Visitors that are not fully vaccinated for COVID-19 must wear a facial covering indoors and whenever six feet of physical distancing cannot be maintained outdoors and complete CMU's Daily Self-Assessment (PDF), on any day they will be on campus. Other approval processes for visitors such as the Collaborating Visitor or programs involving minors will continue to apply in addition to this protocol.

Until further notice, this protocol applies to the presence of visitors to Carnegie Mellon’s U.S.-based campuses and programs. For the most up-to-date visitor guidance at other CMU locations, please refer to their websites and/or reach out to local campus leadership.

For the purpose of this protocol, visitors include anyone who is not a CMU employee, student, vendor, contractor or sponsored affiliate.

Please note that in accordance with CMU’s COVID protocols, all on-campus buildings are currently card-access only (except between August 15-29, 2021 when card-access only restrictions will be temporarily lifted). Permitted visitors are required to be escorted into on-campus buildings by their sponsoring host for indoor meetings and events.
