Keck Graduate Institute (KGI) is closely monitoring the constantly-evolving COVID-19 pandemic. The following information is provided to help guide researchers during this time and provide resources to answer questions that you might have. This page will be updated as information becomes available from federal and non-federal sponsors and the federal government.
To comply with Federal, California, and LA County guidelines, KGI research labs are open for essential research only. Routine continuation of research activities does not qualify as an essential research operation. Research personnel who must come into the labs will be required to fill out a “Research Continuity Plan Template” and send it to the Dean of Research no later than Friday, March 27, 2020. Please email Dean Grill for more information.
In the event of an emergency, please dial 9-1-1. For urgent matters, please contact Jasmine Yu (who will be on campus), or Campus Security.
