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.

Users of QICSS laboratories must adhere to public health directives. People 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 or have the following symptoms: fever (even mild), cough, difficulty breathing, sudden loss of smell or taste (not due to nasal congestion), extreme fatigue, sore throat or gastrointestinal symptoms.

Directives applicable to Statistics Canada laboratories

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 comings and goings inside and outside the laboratories (instead, try to work in an intensive fashion, with fewer sessions).

Cleaning of workstations : The cleaning of workstations is 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 anyone who goes to Statistics Canada’s laboratories at QICSS must comply with the health and safety directives issued by the governments of Canada and Quebec, including wearing a procedural mask. With the exception of the McGill-Concordia laboratory where it is still required at all times, the mask can be removed when you are seated at your workstation, provided that a distance of two (2) meters or a physical barrier is maintained between individuals.

Directives applicable to CADRISQ laboratories

Mandatory Mask: Wearing a mask is mandatory at all times when moving around inside the CADRISQ as well as when the distance between each user at the workstations is one (1) meter (full capacity).
