NNCI Return to Operations Survey
As NNCI facilities prepare for a return to a new normal of research operations, sites frequently consult with each other about how to frame lab policies that enable our researchers and staff to work safely. The information in this document is a survey taken during the week of 5/14/20-5/20/20. Like all COVID-19 policies, lab plans are constantly evolving to meet new information and needs; survey results are just a snapshot of execution plans for various NNCI facilities, which encompass many labs beyond cleanrooms. While there are many similarities in responses, there are many more differences due to local jurisdictions, university policies and resources, user base, etc. These survey results are posted here in the spirit of sharing different approaches that address the same goals.
