from the university-wide reboot committee as you begin to gradually resume research activities in the field and/or research labs.

Effective June 1, 2020, researchers can return to their campus labs and other research sites or spaces to resume time-sensitive projects in a phased manner. We recommend starting this effort by allowing 30-40 percent of campus researchers, including graduate students, lab technicians or other research collaborators, to work on site.

The university has acquired personal protective equipment (PPE) such as wipes, gloves and hand sanitizer to support research faculty and staff members as we continue to reopen research operations.

The Office of Research and Scholarship will continually reassess conditions on campus and in our community, which may result in changes to these policies and practices.
