Research Reactivation Update
Last Update May 15, 2020
I write to call your attention to Governor Whitmer's Executive Order 2020-90 Allowing Laboratory Research to Resume, issued Friday, May 15, 2020.
As you know, we have been planning for a safe reactivation of research at MSU, in anticipation of this order. Researchers should continue to work with their departments, institutes, and colleges within the process described in our earlier communication:
We are working toward an efficient and safe research reactivation. Please note that, Executive Order 2020-90 notwithstanding, on site research activities should NOT resume without approval within the MSU process.
With best wishes,
Senior Vice President for Research and Innovation
Daily Health Screening Questionnaire Form
Faculty, staff and graduate students approved to conduct research activities on MSU sites, even intermittently, need to complete a health screening questionnaire each time they work at an MSU site and communicate the information to their supervisor. While the specific order from the Ingham County Health Department has now been rescinded, the State of Michigan Executive Order 2020-97 requires a daily health screening for those reporting to work. The electronic form below has been developed if departments should choose to use it rather than their current process.
