In view of the present coronavirus situation, the University wishes to emphasise the need to avoid crowded working environments. Faculties, Departments and research supervisors should make sure that research laboratories and RPg student offices are kept at a low density, if they are to remain open. If necessary, please ask RPg students to work from home, or if certain research activities cannot be interrupted, ask the researchers to stay at the labs at different times so that the premises are not crowded.
Clinical research activities in hospitals may be exempted from the low-density requirement if this is not feasible, but professional precautions should be taken.
