Buck COVID-19 Protocol – updated November 1, 2022

Buck Institute has taken extensive precautions to limit the spread of COVID-19 on our campus and ensure compliance with the latest Public Health orders and Cal/OSHA standards.

This form attests that visitors and guests will follow all relevant Buck rules and regulations. Visitors and guests must certify below that they do not have any symptoms suspicious for COVID-19, and should not currently be in isolation if recently diagnosed with COVID-19.

Buck Institute is taking the following measures to ensure the health of all individuals:

  • Individuals are not to enter the building if they are sick, and must follow Buck testing, isolation, and return to work protocols.
  • Recent high-risk exposures may require individuals to mask indoors to protect others.
  • Self-protection with high-quality masks is encouraged.
  • Disinfecting break rooms, restrooms, common areas, and high contact surfaces has increased.


  • I understand wearing a mask indoors is optional although recommended for additional protection. I further understand I may request an N95 mask upon entry. The Buck Institute cannot eliminate the risk of acquiring COVID-19 on its campus.
