Are you concerned about working during the current lockdown environment? When the recent coronavirus pandemic hit, laboratories throughout the world resolved to shut down operations, reduce the scale of work, or proceed at full steam. No matter how research groups have chosen to face the pandemic, new considerations and practices must be in place to ensure the safety of laboratory and office personnel.
With ATCC’s essential position in providing standards and reference materials to coronavirus researchers, we have not had the option to shut down. To safeguard the health of our scientists, ATCC has adopted a battery of best practices that minimize transmission of SARS-CoV-2 with little impact on productivity. Many researchers are unaware of these practices or may be confused as to how to implement them. To address these concerns, ATCC experts will engage in a lively roundtable discussion that shares what they do to keep the staff safe, current challenges, and the silver linings of the new normal.
