Research, laboratory operations and creative activities follow the University’s current COVID-19 policies. Guidelines and protocols previously in place and specific to our research and laboratory settings are suspended.

Investigators and laboratory directors are encouraged to consider contingency planning to ensure continuity in times of crisis and the importance of ongoing safety, safety training and cleanliness measures in our workplaces.

For human-subject research, Research Integrity suggests the Study Participant COVID-19 Information Sheet should continue to be offered to participants on any expectations specific to the research project regarding mask wearing, social distancing, hygiene, etc.

The University’s research community is commended for the resiliency, dedication, collegiality and continued contributions to science and humanity demonstrated throughout the unusually fluid and uncertain times presented by COVID-19.
