PI Research Restart Toolkit

Return to Research Restart webpage

The University of Texas at Austin is committed to reducing the spread of COVID-19 to protect the health and safety of our community. The PI Research Restart Toolkit is a set of policies and best practices that outline how to resume research activities safely on campus. Colleges, schools, and units may request approval from the Executive Vice President and Provost, in consultation with the Vice President for Research, to enforce stricter policies. 

The PI Research Restart Toolkit includes UT policies and best practices for the following topics related to on-campus research:

  • Social distancing
  • Illness in research personnel, including symptom tracking, self-monitoring, and what to do if someone in your group shows symptoms of COVID-19
  • Parking and transportation
  • Face coverings for general use
  • Keeping your research space clean
  • Contact tracing
  • Research-specific PPE
