Researchers will be fitted for lab coats and protective eyewear, and enrolled in a laundry service for the coats, provided free by the University of California. Following the distribution, EH&S will continue providing certain personal-protective items to campus labs.

Free shuttles to the stadium will be provided, along with daily iPad giveaways and free refreshments. Each lab with 100 percent participation will be thrown a pizza party.

Researchers may make a reservation for the distribution event on Eventbrite .

A new UC-wide policy on personal protective equipment takes effect March 31.
