Restart of research activities at The Neuro will follow the McGill University on-campus research phase-in directives and the guidelines on preventing spread of COVID-19.
As The Neuro moves into a transition phase, which includes the gradual resumption of research activities starting on Monday May 25th, please note that use of elevators is now restricted (please see table below).Elevator A (Rockefeller) is accessible for patients, hospital and research staff.
· Patients have priority access.
I hope you have been keeping well.
As you know, McGill sent out a memo over the weekend regarding the gradual research ramp-up on campus.
We are presently establishing guidelines specific to the ramp-up of the research operations at The Neuro, in compliance with both McGill and MUHC protocols (ex: entry points and triage, movement within the complex, health and safety considerations, issues related to human resources, etc.).
Neuro staff and trainees are reminded NOT to enter or exit the building via any other doors.* The only exception is in case of emergency evacuation.
Please respect the requests of security and frontline staff at the main entrance. Tensions can sometimes run high in crisis situations and we ask that everyone be patient and courteous.
