Interim Protocols for Visitors

June 2020

Purpose: University of the Pacific seeks to welcome visitors to our campuses. Visitors include prospective students and their guests, alumni, donors, community members, persons conducting business with Pacific, and persons performing work at Pacific.

Process: To ensure the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff and guests, all visitors will be compliant with required behaviors, use of personal protective equipment (PPE), social distancing and other health and safety standards being adhered to by the university in accordance with federal, state, county and local health guidelines.

All visitors wishing to conduct business on any Pacific campus, should to the extent possible schedule their visit with the hosting unit and on the day of their visit complete the provided survey of good health.  Walk-in appointments will be allowed, but only if the visitor completes the approved screening process prior to entering university spaces beyond one of the designated welcome areas.  At present, designated welcome areas include:

  • In Stockton – Knoles Hall, the DUC, The Knox Memorial Library, Baun Fitness Center
  • In Sacramento – To be determined
  • In San Francisco – To be determined

Once cleared for on-campus visits, all visitors will be required to:

  • Wear face coverings when they are with other people as detailed below. If the visitor does not have a personal face covering, one will be provided.
  • Stay six feet (two meters, two arm lengths) apart from one another in public settings.
  • Adhere to ingress and egress restrictions and all additional health and safety procedures required by the university and any unit(s) the visitor is entering.

Beyond the general guidance for all visitors, individual offices may set specific expectations to be met by visitors. Examples of these campus offices include admission units, facility management units, development and alumni relations departments, community relations and student life.

The nature of any campus visit is to be in direct support of recruitment and retention of students; required participation in authorized athletic competition; the health, safety and welfare of the community; alumni relations; philanthropic purposes; or maintenance, repair, or building of Pacific properties and equipment.  

Office specific procedures above and beyond general campus procedures must be posted and distributed by the unit. Sales calls and product demonstrations, even those related to critical research, should be conducted remotely when possible.
