Yale Law School COVID-19 Information
Please read a message from Dean Gerken on the start of the spring semester.
The spring term began on February 1, 2021 in a hybrid format. Below is a list of important quick links and information on testing and building access. The Law School administration continues to work in close partnership with the University. It is critical that you regularly check back to this page and the Yale COVID-19 website for further updates.
Please read a message from President Salovey with tips for staying safe this semester.
All students, faculty, and staff who will be on campus must complete the Daily Health Check. This tool helps you identify any potential symptoms of COVID-19. Most importantly, if you feel sick, stay home. Members of the Yale community may now elect to receive Daily Health Check reminder emails to provide quick and convenient access to the tool each day.
Students will have access to both Baker Hall and the Sterling Law Building Monday through Friday from 8am to 8pm. Visit our FAQ page for more information on building access and protocols.
Testing and Travel
NEW: Weekly testing requirements for Spring Semester. All law students in residence (with status LM3) who are enrolled in an in-person or hybrid class at YLS must be tested weekly. All students living in Baker Hall must be tested weekly. You can schedule your test here.
The University strongly encourages graduate and professional school students, faculty, and staff who are coming to campus to take advantage of the weekly testing program available. This program allows any student, faculty, or staff member who is on campus to receive a free test up to once a week. Please schedule a COVID test here.
If you have questions, Yale’s Campus COVID Resource Line (CCRL, 203-432-6604) is available 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. ET, 7 days a week.
For those returning to New Haven from out of state, please see the returning to campus protocols outlined under the Law School FAQ page. If you are traveling out of town, you will need to follow Yale’s protocols for quarantining and testing upon your return. The University strongly urges members of the community to limit interstate and international travel unless it is absolutely necessary.
You may report a concern about compliance with COVID-19 health and safety policies or regulations to the Health and Safety Leader Ellen Cosgrove. You may also make an anonymous or identified report through Yale’s hotline at 877-360-9253, or online at Yale University Hotline. The hotline is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Staff can also report to their staff supervisor or HR.
Maintaining an Inclusive Environment
Yale University is committed to maintaining an environment of respect and freedom from discrimination and to supporting all members of our community affected by this global health threat. Bias, discrimination, and harassment are inimical to our values and violate Yale policies.
