Stage 2 Process for Resuming Research

*Under Brown Campus Activity Level 1, Brown Stage 2 Research Resumption remains in effect* [Effective Nov. 18, 2020]

The goal of Stage 2 is to resume all laboratory-based research that can be conducted pursuant to government, public health, and University guidelines and is consistent with building density constraints and other COVID-19 necessitated precautions and restrictions. Faculty who have submitted and received approval for lab plans in Stage 1 must update these plans if the research will incorporate Stage 2 parameters, such as additional personnel or increase in number of people working in the lab at the same time. Faculty not previously approved in Stage 1  should provide a Lab Density Sheet (link to template) and a Justification narrative to their department manager and chair, who will submit it to OVPR for approval.
