In the event there is a confirmed COVID-19 case, the affected area(s) will be:

  • Closed off and will remain closed for 24 hours, where feasible.
  • Cleaned and disinfected (after the 24 hours have passed).
  • Assessed to ensure that it is ready for use again (upon completion of cleaning).

Employees will not be allowed to enter closed off areas under any circumstances (e.g. to obtain personal materials, feed fish etc.). It is strongly recommended that objects which are regularly required (e.g. medication, laptop) or need regular care (e.g. fish) not be left in the office. For those conducting lab research, action plans should be developed to implement in the case of area shut down. No personnel will be allowed in a potentially contaminated environment.
