Return to Campus
UT strives to protect the careers of early-stage researchers and prioritize their return to campus if they cannot work remotely so that they can conduct work linked to degree requirements, time-sensitive funding, or tenure and career review.
Distancing in Research Spaces
No more than one individual may occupy 200 square feet of research or office space. Offices smaller than 300 square feet should be considered single-occupancy.
Recommended Protective Face Masks and Social Distancing
All students, staff and faculty must remain at least 6 feet from other people and wear a recommended protective face mask at all times when inside university research spaces, except when working alone in a single-occupancy office. Recommended protective face masks do not replace appropriate personal protective equipment that may be called for in laboratory standard operating procedures, particularly for work involving biohazards, chemical hazards or animals.
Positive COVID-19 Test
If you or someone in your research group tests positive for COVID-19, contact UT Occupational Health and provide the sign-in records for your research space for contact tracing purposes.
