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.

Institute for the Future requires all employees, independent contractors, or visitors to our Palo Alto, CA offices to be up to date with their COVID-19 vaccination (must have received all recommended vaccines and boosters).

To be inside IFTF’s Palo Alto offices, all visitors:

  • Must have a health screening before entry and provide identification in the form of a picture I.D. and proof of vaccination (acceptable forms are original vaccine card, a photograph and or a printed copy of the vaccine card, or have the State of CA Digital COVID-19 Vaccine Record QR code). Please do not enter the IFTF offices if you are experiencing any symptoms, even if you are testing negative for Covid-19.
  • Wearing an approved face covering and following all safety protocols, such as social distancing and hand washing, at all times is strongly recommended.
