Current Research Operations (Updated: April 27, 2021)
Thank you for your continued efforts to Protect Purdue and our research spaces. As a result of your diligence, we still only have one potential case of in-lab transmission of COVID-19. To ensure the safety of our community as we move into the Summer semester, we ask that points of contact continue to maintain and update Research Space COVID SOPs through our online portal, here. This includes adding or removing personnel and modifying layouts or procedures. In addition, you can and should create a new SOP for new research spaces, e.g., if your lab moves to another building, on the online portal.
While we are maintaining current research space SOP requirements and protocols for the summer, we are hopeful that we can move towards lab re-densification in the fall. Any changes will be communicated by the EVPRP in the coming months.
We are building on lessons learned and working with the Protect Purdue leadership team to plan for the 2021 Summer and Fall semesters. We want our processes to be as effective and practical as possible and would appreciate your input as we look toward the future. Please provide any suggestions or concerns you have that are specific to the research enterprise to Michelle Dennis (email@example.com).
