Updated Directives Research Ramp-up Phase 3
As of July 8, 2020, all researchers who cannot perform their tasks remotely will be allowed to return to work, in compliance with all safety protocols.
As a consequence, the restriction of a maximum of 75% of staff whose tasks require presence at work is lifted.
As per University directives, Principal Investigators are expected to continue to work remotely. If there is a need for a Principal Investigator to go to their lab to conduct experimental work, an exemption can be requested by contacting stefano.stifani [at] mcgill.ca (Stefano Stifani).
All returning researchers will be mandated to complete both the
- McGill COVID-19 self-assessment questionnaire before going to work and
- The Neuro Access Log after each visit.
Reminder: Health and Safety Protocols must be followed
All research activities continue to be guided by two University directives:
and are to follow public and occupational health guidelines set by authorities outside of the University.
All researchers will need to adhere to the following guidelines:
- Two-metre distancing will be enforced at all times.
- If two-metre distancing cannot be enforced on some occasions, appropriate PPE must be worn.
- Principal Investigators will be expected to implement all possible measures to reduce social contacts (eg, consider rotating schedules, early and late shifts, grouping researchers into separate work “bubbles” with distinct or staggered work shifts including break times and meals).
- If a staff member develops symptoms, all lab members, or members of the same “bubble” (if contacts were limited to a bubble group), will need to self-isolate until allowed to go back to work.
