Following CDC recommendations, Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont has ordered face coverings to be worn by anyone in public. Members of the Yale community are expected to comply with the Governor’s order and wear face coverings when outside or in any space that can reasonably be expected to be shared (e.g., common work areas, hallways, and restrooms). A face covering is not required when working alone in segregated spaces (i.e., cubicles with walls, private offices, etc.).
As part of Research Reactivation each group working in an approved laboratory, core facility, or other research support function will be provided with 3 reusable cloth masks, 50 disposable surgical masks, 1 container of hand sanitizer, 1 packet of sanitizing wipes, 1 lanyard per approved researcher and 1 spray bottle of disinfecting solution per research group in order to comply with the state directive for face coverings, and to aid in the prevention of infection. Prior to placing an order for this initial supply an authorization e mail must be received by the PI/Manager from EHS integrator.
