Information for University Contractors and Vendors

Revised: March 15, 2022

These requirements apply to Vendors and Contractors who provide services on the Princeton University campus and/or in University-owned or leased buildings (“University Property”). These requirements do not apply to long term temporary agency staff, who must follow all University policies when working under the direction of a University employee or faculty member.

All University Contractors and Vendors who provide services on campus or in University Property must comply with New Jersey Department of Health public health guidance, including COVID-19 Isolation and Quarantine recommendations, and any additional requirements and instructions provided by the University representative with oversight responsibility over their engagement (the “University Representative”).

Contractors and Vendors must also comply with the following University requirements:

  • Contractors and Vendors who provide services on University Property must notify, within 24 hours, Environmental Health and Safety ([email protected]) if an employee, worker, visitor, third party, or any other individual for whom the Contractor/Vendor is responsible and who was at the work site tests positive for COVID-19
  • If an employee, worker, visitor, third party, or any other individual for whom the Contractor/ Vendor is responsible, tests positive for COVID-19 and has been on University Property within 3 days prior to onset of symptoms, the Contractor/Vendor is responsible for:
    • Notifying the University Representative of the positive test. 
    • Clean and disinfect high touch surfaces within the renovation/construction spaces including break areas, elevators, stairwells, and restrooms. The Contractor/Vendor is responsible for cleaning and disinfection or may hire a third party. The Contractor/Vendor must follow CDC guidance for cleaning and disinfection and use products that are effective against the virus that causes COVID-19.
  • ​​​​​The affected Contractor/Vendor employee, worker, visitor, third party, or other individual for whom the Vendor or Contractor is responsible may return to the University work site as specified by the NJ DOH Isolation and Quarantine guidelines and the Contractor/Vendor requirements, which may not be less stringent than NJ DOH guidelines.   
  • Vendor/Contractor employees, workers, visitors, and other parties for whom the Vendor/Contractor is responsible must be provided with a means to review these requirements.
