The Department of Comparative Medicine, which oversees the Veterinary Service Center, has continuity plans in place to continue to provide routine care (food, water, sanitation, health checks) and routine veterinary care. The VSC is currently well stocked on essential items for animal care. If staffing or supply shortages do occur, VSC support may be reduced to focus on animal care. The VSC may need to stop scheduling services in support of elective or new research procedures. Further information can be found on the VSC site.
