If you have concerns with COVID-19 safety, please let us know using this form! All submissions are anonymous (email addresses are NOT recorded) and any identifying information (such as names) will be removed. Our goal is to provide a safe, anonymous way for postdocs to submit safety concerns without fear of retribution or retaliation, while keeping track of concrete examples of these concerns that can be brought to the administration.
