Research at UPEI

UPEI The Return to Laboratory Work Plan and Return to Field and Off-Site Work Plan were developed in 2020 as part of UPEI’s Operational Ease-Back Plan as there were a number of areas that needed careful consideration by laboratory supervisors before work in laboratories could resume and for research to be performed in the field and off-site. In addition, the University worked closely with the PEI Chief Public Health Office to develop a student protocol for the safe use of laboratories, which is contained in the Student Laboratory Protocol.

The Return to Laboratory Work Plan and Return to Field and Off-Site Work Plan, and Student Classroom Protocol were lifted for the 2021 Fall Academic Semester, but may need to be re-instituted in the future based on public health guidance.
