Research Ramp Up Guidance

Guidelines for returning to work.

Research areas must comply with Campus and County COVID-19 Public Health orders before reopening. UC San Diego has developed guidance and checklists to minimize infection rates and keep personnel safe. 

  • Ramp Up Checklist for Research Areas (Non-labs) - (PDF) (Word)
  • Ramp Up Checklist for Hazardous Material Research Labs and Shops  - (PDF) (Word)

Note: Modifications may occur as the ramp-up process evolves.

For more information on the research ramp-up procedures and protocols visit the Ramp Up Research page.

Note: Volunteers ages 16 and over are now permitted to work on-site in research facilities. All volunteers must be added to Research Ramp-up plans. Volunteers who are not affiliated with UC San Diego (as enrolled students, employees or visiting scholars/students) must be vaccinated prior to beginning on-site activity.
