COVID Information

Interns, Fellows, and Research Associates, just as with employees, are no longer required to be vaccinated. 

The Smithsonian is, and will continue to be, a mask-friendly institution and is committed to fostering an inclusive, safe, and supportive workplace.


Occupational Health Services (OHS) still requests that anyone in the SI community who tests positive for COVID report their case to When a positive case is reported, OHS will provide that person with instructions for isolation and return-to-work protocols. OHS will also include advice for them to pass along to anyone who may have been exposed.
