COVID-19 Research Continuity Planning for the University of Utah: May 27 - June 9

The Office of the Vice President for Research (VPR) remains operational as we continue to closely monitor the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. Updates from May 27th through June 9th are below.

University of Utah is still in Orange Phase
As a reminder, the University of Utah is still in Moderate Risk Status (Orange Phase). Faculty and staff should not come to campus and continue to work remotely from home with the exception of limited research activities. An expected date to move to Low Health Risk Status (Yellow Phase) is still unknown. In the meantime, please continue to follow the health and safety guidelines for Orange Phase.

Eccles Institute of Human Genetics is reopened
The Eccles Institute of Human Genetics (EIHG) has been thoroughly disinfected due to a positive COVID-19 case in the building. The EIHG building is now reopened to Limited Research Activities Only under the university’s Orange Phase conditions. 

Return to Campus
Information about campus instructional activities for Fall Semester 2020 is now available on the university’s Return to Campus website.

Thank you for all of your input as we strive to provide needed information and guidance on the VPR website as quickly as possible. We appreciate all of your hard work to keep research operations running smoothly as much as possible during these challenging events.
