As concerns about COVID-19 heighten, we are intensifying measures to protect CU Boulder students, faculty and staff, as well as the Boulder community. 

The Research & Innovation Office is currently working with our research institutes, colleges and schools and laboratories to identify critical laboratory operations and staff, and suspend all non-essential research activities on campus as soon as practical. 

By the end of Wednesday, March 18, all labs will be closing except where there is a critical risk of disruption, catastrophic loss or animal care requirements. Exceptions beyond this requirement must be approved by the Dean or Institute Director and the Vice Chancellor for Research & Innovation. Access to research spaces will be limited to individuals who have been identified as critical to those operations.
