Research Ramp-Up Details
As part of a careful, gradual return to campus operations, research ramp-up activities are anticipated to begin as early as June 18. Only researchers and staff who must return to campus in order to carry out their job duties should return to work on campus. Supervisors will provide specific direction to their teams on when to return to in-person work. Anyone with questions about when or how they should start reporting to work in-person should, first, ask their supervisor.
Required: “Returning Safely to Your Lab” Video
If you have been identified by your supervisor to return to your lab, or if you have been working in one of the labs that has remained open, you will be required to watch the “Returning Safely to Your Lab” videos. The six-part module will include what you can expect, recommended safety precautions, cleaning and disinfection best practices, and proper use and disposal of PPE, among other helpful tips for best ensuring your safety and the safety of others.

All Georgia Tech shared-user facilities will be ramping down research activities in response to the ongoing COVID-19 threat.
To comply with the directive from our administration, the MCF will close at 5:00PM this Thursday. All characterization work needs to be complete by 3:00 pm on Thursday without exception.
Equally importantly, please make sure to recover any data that you need to work remotely before that time.
There is no announced date about when the MCF will reopen, so please check Georgia Tech news regularly.
Further details and updates about the impact on research can be found here, and we will be sending SUMS/email announcements as updates occur.
Updates on the Georgia Tech community and the Covid-19 virus can be found here along with a FAQ.
