Phases I & II of Research Resumption

On June 8, 2020, Penn began its  Phase I of Research Resumption.  On July 13, 2020 the University moved to  Phase II . Members of your lab and research program may require new training or daily symptom attestation (participating schools).  As schools release their unique and updated Research Resumption plans, they will become available at the bottom of this page. 

Procuring PPE & Supplies

Critical supplies will be available to those returning to campus, including Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and additional supplies related to COVID-19 safety. Procurement through the Penn Marketplace leverages Penn’s relationships with preferred providers and ensures quality. 

This document provides guidance to the Penn community on the ongoing procurement of PPE and additional supplies related to COVID-19 safety. These items and product categories include face coverings, gloves, gowns, cleaners/disinfectants, signage, plexiglass shielding, etc.
