From the Office of Research:
The Office of Research is regularly updating guidelines on contingency planning for individual research labs and research core facilities. It is general good practice for core managers/directors, principal investigators and lab managers to be ready for any possible circumstances. Especially at this time of COVID-19 outbreak, all research lab and core leaders are encouraged to regularly review and update contingency plans for maintaining critical lab operations on site or via remote work from home, based on the specific needs for each lab.
Research personnel and departments are advised to refer to the guidelines posted on https://www.vumc.org/oor/contingency-planning-vumc-research-labs-and-cores frequently as information will be updated as the situation evolves.
