RCUH Advisory for Project PIs During the COVID-19 Pandemic

This advisory provides a guiding framework for principal investigators (PIs) during the COVID-19 pandemic. RCUH will continue its finance and personnel services to assist PIs in successfully managing their research and training projects and protecting the health and safety of their staff. Some of the items below will be immediately applicable, while others provide information that will be useful at a later date. All of the advisories presented under the subheadings RCUH Financial Transactions and RCUH Personnel Transactions can be implemented immediately, which RCUH recommends. However, because there is a wide variety of projects served by RCUH, the timing of when to implement these actions is left to the PI’s best judgement. Note that increasing numbers of governmental agencies and private businesses are suspending operations, requiring employees to work
remotely, and/or functioning only with essential workers. RCUH is closely monitoring the rapidly evolving COVID-19 outbreak and will issue advisory updates as necessary.
