All Rights Reserved. New state-of-the-art Stanford Redwood City campus is now open March 29, 2019 The exterior of Cardinal Hall, with University Hall in the background, at Stanford Redwood City. Stanford University to close most of campus to the public Tuesday to limit spread of COVID-19. “As we continue working toward the beginning of autumn quarter and the gradual resumption of teaching and research on campus, the rapidly evolving nature of the pandemic requires unprecedented steps to safeguard the health of all who live, learn and work here,” said Stanford President Marc Tessier-Lavigne. “We want suggestions for how the campus zones can be improved as we all learn together over the coming weeks how best to implement this program that was necessitated by the state guidance,” said President Tessier-Lavigne. The new rule becomes effective Sept. 8 and coincides with a significant increase in the number of students on campus, which is expected to reach approximately 6,300 for the autumn quarter. A center of excellence for critical areas that support the university’s mission of research and education, Stanford Redwood City is located a mile from downtown and five miles from Stanford’s main campus. The Academic Campus Zone, Campus Zones, Athletic Zone and Campus Art Zone will be limited to approved students, faculty, staff and other Stanford affiliates, while Community Zones will be open … Stanford is seeking additional guidance from Santa Clara County public health officials regarding whether students can host visitors in the Campus Zones, which is currently prohibited. Most noticeable is the elimination of visitor parking in the Academic Campus Zone, which will be enforced seven days a week. The Alumni Center, which is repurposing some of its spaces for teaching, will not host in-person events during the autumn quarter. Important COVID-19 updates for the campus community continue to be provided through the Health Alerts website, and campus community members should submit concerns to the Ethics and Compliance Helpline. For example, the university hopes that the Campus Arts Zone may be opened to visitors sooner than might be possible in other areas. “We appreciate the understanding and cooperation of our neighbors and the campus community as Stanford implements these changes,” said Megan Swezey Fogarty, associate vice president for community engagement. Some modifications to campus parking availability and enforcement are accompanying the creation of the campus zones. The campus zones program seeks to balance the various needs created by the state guidance. The novel coronavirus is likely going to be with us until a vaccine is developed. The guidance reflects the challenges of increasing on-campus activity while there is persistent, widespread transmission of COVID-19 in the community. © Stanford University. Visitor access to many parts of the main Stanford campus will be limited, though areas designated for recreation and other purposes will continue to welcome members of the public. In addition to graduate students, a reduced number of undergraduates with special circumstances are also living on campus. Clearly identified Stanford safety personnel will maintain a presence in popular gathering places located in restricted zones, such as the Oval, Meyer Green, Wilbur Field, Roble Field, Cobb Field, the athletic fields along El Camino Real and Lake Lagunita. Members of the public are still allowed to walk, bike and drive along Campus Drive, and to access the Dish loop and the Campus Perimeter Trail for outdoor exercise. Different areas of the main campus where almost all academic, residential, cultural and athletic facilities are located, with the exception of the Stanford Medical Center and the faculty subdivision, will be designated as one of five types of zones: While the current restrictions for the first four zones are similar, the university is maintaining the distinct designations to preserve greater flexibility to adjust restrictions in different parts of campus as public health conditions improve. Approved vendors and subcontracted workers without a Stanford ID are asked to wear an appropriate uniform or to have a university-issued authorization letter readily available. STANFORD, Calif.
