On June 18, CHAS hosted its first interactive discussion for its membership. Over 130 people attended to hear about plans for reopening academic labs in light of the Covid 19 Pandemic. Discussion primarily focused on protocols for social distancing, community protective equipment, and disinfection practices in the research lab setting, although the challenges of the teaching lab in the “new normal” were raised as well. Future discussions will address the teaching lab setting more explicitly.
