For those faculty who have restarted their research program on campus or in the field, I have received confirmation from Aurali Dade that you will be able to continue those activities uninterrupted between Thanksgiving and the beginning of spring semester. The pivot to online instruction and the possible delay in starting spring semester will not affect your access to research facilities. You will have to follow the approved safety protocols, of course. And, as always, this is all subject to change if the COVID situation in our community deteriorates.
