  • An important first step is to stay home if you are sick, and to communicate that request to your teams. In general, contingency planning could include:
  • Identify essential personnel and ensure they know what to do in the event of suspended operations.
  • Remind personnel of your communication plan or create one if not in place, including sharing cell phone numbers, etc.
  • Identify priorities in case of restricted access.
  • In advance, test to ensure remote access to files, data, servers, etc
  • Prioritize experiments as appropriate.
  • Plan for the potential need to separate research animal breeding pairs to suspend breeding.
  • Plan for potential disruptions to research animal orders, imports, exports, and transfers.
  • Plan for remote proposal submission
  • Check travel restrictions before making travel plans
