As we begin to bring back faculty, staff and students who are working on critical research projects across Northeastern’s research enterprise, all research continuity decisions will be made consistent with local, state and national public health authority directives and guidance in force at the location of the research activity.
Among the critical projects across the university’s research labs, research efforts to combat and respond to the COVID–19 pandemic remain a top priority.
Before resuming research, individuals will be properly trained, have access to personal protective equipment, and understand whom to contact with technical or safety questions.
For students, individual decisions to return to campus, laboratories, and approved human subjects research will be voluntary and we will operate on the principle that people opt-in. For employees, individual decisions should be discussed with managers.
