Per the recent guidance, anyone returning from travel outside of Indiana should NOT return to campus research labs for 14 days after their return. These individuals should: 1) stay home if sick; 2) work/study remotely; and 3) continue to practice safe social distancing. Additionally, anyone returning from a Level 3 travel advisory country must self-quarantine for a period of 14 days.

Because Discovery Park is home for many of Purdue’s interdisciplinary research laboratories, we will limit access to all Discovery Park buildings beginning tomorrow morning, March 23, 2020. All Discovery Park buildings will remain locked further until notice. Directors or supervisors should authorize that faculty, staff, and students meet the newly released criteria for returning to work in research labs. Anyone authorized to use a Discovery Park facility will be able to enter the building using their building key or access card. Building Deputies will be available to assist those without access.

Signs will be posted on the outside doors of the Discovery Park buildings by 8 am tomorrow. Building deputies for Discovery Park buildings will be briefed on these restrictions tonight.

Please feel free to contact me directly if you have any questions.
