Return to Research

A protocol and process guide for a phased approach to returning to on-campus and field research activities.

This Protocol and Process Guide provides direction on how on-campus and field research activity can resume in phases, to be implemented when circumstances related to COVID-19 in Nova Scotia will allow the gradual lifting of activity restrictions. The processes outlined here are sufficiently general that they can be followed throughout the coming months, within the evolving stages of lifting activity restrictions by the Provincial Chief Medical Officer of Health (CMOH).

First phase of implementing this return to research process

Starting Monday, May 25, applications will be accepted following the process outlined here for research activities falling into one of these two categories only:

  • research related directly to COVID-19 issues
  • field research
