Resumption of Research Operations:

Update - March 24, 2021

Previously published guidance on the resumption of laboratory, non-Human Subjects Research is now suspended.

However, the Covid 19 pandemic continues to present complex challenges and events may transpire that could require a return to more restrictive guidance.  

Effective March 24, 2021 the following guidance will be in effect:

  • Masks are required at all times in the laboratory, research spaces, and elsewhere on campus. Some laboratories may require gloves or other protective equipment as well.
  • Efforts should be made to keep laboratory personnel density as low as practical, and social distancing should be practiced when possible.
  • Hand hygiene and disinfecting workspaces are strongly encouraged at all times.
  • Those who work in shared space or use shared equipment must jointly develop and implement a plan for hygiene maintenance.

 Guidance for Human Subjects Research dated 3/17/2021 is current and the recommendations should be followed.
