In conjunction with university level planning efforts, individual research labs should begin planning for continuity of operations in anticipation of possible disruptions to normal campus activities. Due to the unique nature of research carried out by laboratories, it is important for each lab to plan for potential disruptions. Lab-specific plans should coincide with department level continuity plans such as identification of critical operations and essential personnel. Below are some general guidelines to assist in developing continuity plans.
