Consistent with campus policies at MGHPCC member universities, the MGHPCC has the following COVID-19 precautions in place.
First, when you are on-site, you must wear a mask when in common areas such as the lobby, office area, or computer room. Please also maintain six (6) feet of distance from others.
Second, we require that anyone arriving at the MGHPCC data center verify that they are “fully vaccinated” (as defined below) by presenting their COVID-19 vaccination card (or a suitable image of it) when they arrive. For anyone who cannot, or chooses not to, verify their vaccination status, please follow the visit scheduling process outlined at the bottom of this page.
For someone to be considered “fully vaccinated” they must satisfy one of the following:
If you present a COVID-19 vaccination card confirming your status as fully vaccinated, when you arrive at the MGHPCC, please show your COVID-19 vaccination card while checking in at the front desk. A legible image of your card, on paper or on your smartphone screen, is an OK substitute. If you can confirm your status as fully vaccinated upon arrival by showing your vaccine card, you may work in the facility at any time. Note – while you are at the MGHPCC, you may come into contact with others whose vaccination status is unknown.
If you cannot, or choose not to present a COVID-19 vaccination card confirming your status as fully vaccinated, the COVID restrictions and processes established in March 2020 still apply. These restrictions and processes are summarized below.
