What are everyone’s policies for allowing students to take scopes and specimens home if we are not allowed to work in the labs or they test positive?  Currently our policy is to not allow it, especially when working on specimens on loan from other institutions. But, grad students are going to be very unhappy if we stick to this.  What are others doing about their people?  What will your institution say about specimens on loan leaving the institution it is on loan to?
