1.0               Agenda :  Accepted without changes


2.0               As a result of our meeting in May, a Committee for Research Resumption during CoVid was struck by the VPRI, reporting back to the CoVid Transition Committee.  This committee was tasked with developing guidelines and supporting documents to allow for the return to laboratory activities in a safe manner.


Discussion covered the elements of the plan, but official documents were not shared at this time as the office of the VPRI was planning round table sessions to involve stakeholders in the finalization process.  An announcement with these dates will be coming very soon.


Return to the lab by researchers will require approval of the VPRI’s office, similar in process to the process for essential research framework announced in early March.  Return to academic labs for Fall preparations will occur through a process yet to be determined by the VP academic’s office.


CoVid Awareness training is also being developed and will soon be released for employees to complete before coming back to campus.


3.0               Adjournment:  10:56 AM
