Stage 2 Process for Resuming Research - Summer 2021

Following current Brown COVID-19 safety policies, laboratories with approved safety plans may operate at a density of 1 person per 75 ft2. Laboratories are encouraged to maintain a shared calendar with daily occupancy by lab personnel indicated. It is important to note that regardless of individual vaccination status, all approved personnel must continue to follow current Brown COVID-19 safety policies.

Effective June 11, 2021, the development, review, and approval of Return to Campus Plans (academic, administrative, and research) by the Research Continuity Committee will no longer be required. Instead, departments and labs will be responsible for reviewing, approving, and maintaining on-site staffing, and submitting all changes directly to University Human Resources. Please note that on-site work by essential research visitors, and field research by Brown employees and students, still require review as explained in the guidelines below.

The Summer 2021 deadlines to submit review requests for essential research visitors, cores external users or field research are:

Noon (12:00 pm) Thursday, June 17 Noon (12:00 pm) Thursday, July 29
