Evolutionary Genetics Lab Covid-19 Safety

The first priority of the MVZ is to ensure the health and safety of its faculty, staff, students and visitors amidst the COVID-19 outbreak. We follow the orders of the city of Berkeley, Alameda County and the state of California as directed by the University of California Berkeley.

If you have previously worked in the EGL and wish to re-join the lab during Phase 2 of our reopening, please contact the lab manager to discuss the procedure for access. You may also start executing the following prerequisites:

      Once you have permission to work in the EGL, you will also need to fill out the Daily symptom screener any day that you will be on campus.

    2. Read the Phase 2 Standard Operation Procedure for Evolutionary Genetics Laboratory document and the EGL Phase 2 Factsheet. Then electronically record your agreement.

    3. Familiarize yourself with the VLSB hallway and stairwell directional traffic flow patterns.

    4. Read the instructions about use of the EGL bookedscheduler and sign up for an account here.

    5. Read over the linked document describing any room or equipment location changes in the EGL since summer 2020 and restrictions or requirements for the use of different EGL spaces.
