The global COVID-19 crisis continues to unfold as do institutional and government responses. We are
monitoring the situation and responding to guidance and imperatives from Queen's University. For now we
intend to stay open for individual researchers for the Spring and Summer but encourage them to access our
facilities and landbase each day from home packing their own bagged lunch. We will not host gatherings of
more than 10 people, and field courses, large workshops and other such meetings will not be hosted until
further notice. For researchers from farther away, we will work to accommodate you in our facilities but
will seek to ensure 'social distancing' with only one person per cabin, plenty of hand sanitizer and soap
and water, and access to cooking facilities so that individuals may provide for themselves (we are
exploring kitchen options). Please contact us should you have questions and note that our plans and
actions may change as the situation evolves. Here is a link to COVID-19 resources at Queen's:
Should you have questions regarding activities at QUBS please contact our Senior Manager Sonia Nobrega,
Operations Managers of our two campuses, Aron Zolderdo and Adam Morcom, of QUBS Director Stephen Lougheed.
Please check back regularly for the latest updates.
