Hi All

As a part of new COVID19 safety policies rolling out at the Broad Institute, we've also decided to actually enforce our PPE policy of wearing a lab coat and safety glasses when working in a lab. Part of the fall out are a lot of excuses that we're hearing from researchers on why they're not complying.

I was hoping that you all could help me brainstorm additional excuses that you all have heard from students, researchers about why they aren't wearing the appropriate PPE.

I want to be ready with responses to each of these excuses. So I thank you in advance for your time with this.

Kind regards,
Pauline Serrano
