COVID-19 Guidance for BIRC Users

Researchers should consult OVPR COVID-19 Guidance for the latest information and monitor University communications for updates.

Safety Plans

As most labs have already resumed activity, and given the state of COVID-19 transmission in CT and regionally, there is no longer any additional, special guidance for research labs beyond university guidance and requirements for general operations.  All research labs must continue to adhere to university wide and campus specific guidance and requirements.

Key information

  • Health screening: You must perform on yourself and your research participants 24H before arrival and upon arrival. Please bring your own form.
  • PPE requirements: You and your participants must bring your own masks and, if required, face shields. Sneeze guards are provided in behavioral rooms.
  • Cleaning procedure: Please use the UConn approved Windex Multi-Surface sanitizer to wipe down all equipment and surfaces after every participant.
