Pediatrics Restart Research Committee
If you have questions or concerns, please email us. We meet at least weekly to discuss new guidance and solve issues related to the Department of Pediatrics’ research recovery activities.
All researchers should review the Restart Checklist in the Stanford Research Recovery Handbook prior to coming to campus.
MASKS: Per August 2, 2021 Health Alerts, all Stanford employees, students and visitors will be required to wear face coverings in indoor spaces. Exceptions are allowed for individuals who are alone in a private office or room or actively eating or drinking.
VACCINE REQUIREMENT: All faculty, staff and postdoctoral scholars as well as undergraduate, graduate and professional students coming to campus in fall 2021 will be required to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19. The vaccination status question on Health Check, requires a response from faculty, staff, postdocs and students coming on-site, and beginning at 5 p.m. on July 1, 2021. The Stanford Medicine policy requires announced on July 6, 2021 requires all health system employees and all patient-facing employees of the School of Medicine to be vaccinated before August 15, 2021. COVID-19 Vaccine Resources.
HEALTH CHECK: Faculty, staff and postdoctoral scholars who have (1) listed their vaccination date(s) and manufacturers in Health Check and (2) uploaded an image of their documentation on Health Check will no longer be required to make Health Check submissions when coming to campus (unless they become symptomatic or receive a positive COVID test result) or to undergo regular testing.
TESTING: Stanford has a free COVID-19 surveillance testing program for faculty, staff, and postdocs not experiencing COVID-19 symptoms. Starting Sept 20, 2021, on-site fully vaccinated faculty, staff, and postdoctoral scholars will be required to test once a week. Twice weekly testing will be required for unvaccinated faculty, staff, and postdoctoral scholars. Until, Sept 20, participation in Stanford’s surveillance testing program is voluntary for vaccinated Stanford faculty, staff and postdocs approved to come to campus. Stanford recommends you continue to test weekly until you are fully vaccinated, and after that, following travel or if you believe you may have been exposed to COVID-19. Postdocs living on campus are required to test weekly, as is the case for graduate students who are in similar housing.
REPORTING CONCERNS: Anyone with concerns should feel free to contact the Pediatrics Restart Research Committee and/or Stanford’s Ethics and Compliance Helpline (650-721-2667).
