Coronavirus (COVID-19) Research-Related Updates

Due to the rapidly deteriorating conditions, Duke University has severely curtailed laboratory research activities, on campus and in our leased facilities. Exempted from this is research directly related to COVID-19. Only activity essential to preserve the future viability of research programs will be permitted in Duke laboratories. Scholars whose research does not entail laboratory work should comply with the spirit of our current guidance: to limit campus presence to essential personnel, while making contingency plans for a more extended period of reduced access to campus and leased facilities.

Duke continues to closely monitor the coronavirus outbreak and is actively engaged in daily planning in an effort to inform and reduce risk to faculty, staff, students, and visitors. For more information and guidance on other aspects of Duke’s COVID-19 plans, please visit Duke’s Coronavirus Response page and review the information listed on the left.
