Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

  • Masks/shields/facial coverings provided by the University must be worn at all times, except when physically isolated in a private space (e.g., closed private office not used by others and not having any visitors).
  • Other PPE (gloves, disposable gowns, face shields, shoe covers) may be indicated in situations that increase risk of exposure/transmission in some contexts.
  • Daily logging of all prolonged (over 10 minutes) contacts and all common rooms visited for all individuals returning to workplace. (Ideally through a QR code system.)
  • Online forms and/or QR codes created for individuals to log all contacts made with individuals within building
  • Plan/Protocol for rapid response to illness / outbreak is established and communicated, as well as posted in all research spaces
