If so, they must consider the experience level of the student researcher and develop a detailed plan for the spring semester that accounts for anticipated low researcher density in campus laboratories and guidelines for the use of PPE, social distancing, testing, and contact tracing. Undergraduate researchers must receive Covid-19-specific safety and hygiene training before beginning work.
