Institute for the Future

Consistent with a duty to provide and maintain a workplace that is free of recognized hazards, Institute for the Future’s (IFTF) COVID-19 vaccine policy is to safeguard the health and well-being of employees; our clients, sponsors, and visitors; others who spend time in our facilities; and the community from infectious conditions that may be mitigated through an effective vaccination program and safety protocols.

This policy is based upon guidance provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and public health and licensing authorities, as applicable, and may be revised as updated guidance becomes available.

To be inside IFTF’s Palo Alto offices:

  • We recommend that all employees, independent contractors, or visitors must be up to date with their COVID-19 vaccination (must have received all recommended vaccines and boosters).

  • Wearing an approved face covering is optional

  • Following all safety protocols, such as social distancing when applicable and hand washing, at all times is strongly recommended.

Please do not enter the IFTF offices if you are experiencing any symptoms, even if you are testing negative for Covid-19.
