Current health-related directives and notices for all laboratories

You will find below all information on new measures that will ensure the protection of researchers and of the whole community. For any additional details, please contact your analyst; their contact information is shown here.

Directives applicable to all laboratories

Users of QICSS laboratories must adhere to public health directives. Individuals presenting with symptoms of COVID-19 are not authorized to come to the laboratories. It is, of course, forbidden to come to the premises if you are ill or present with the following symptoms: fever (even mild), cough, difficulty breathing, sudden loss of sense of smell or of taste (not due to congestion), or extreme fatigue.

Furthermore, everyone must respect the physical distancing rule of 2 metres, wash their hands frequently, avoid circulating where it is not necessary and limit the number of times you come and go from laboratories (instead, try to work in an intensive fashion, with fewer sessions).

Cleaning of workstations : The cleaning of workstations will be mandatory before and after each work session. The workstation will therefore have to be shut down a few minutes prior to the end of the reservation period so that cleaning may proceed.

Mandatory Mask : Please note that users of QICSS laboratories must comply with the health and safety directives issued by the Quebec government, including wearing a procedural mask.
