Ignoring jupyterlab-plotly folder when installing Plotly in Python

When installing Plotly in a virtual environment in Python, I see that the folder jupyterlab_plotly is also included in the site-packages folder of my virtual environment. My program is not doing anything with Jupyter, so do I really need that folder included in my virtual environment?

I am deploying to an environment that puts tight limitations on the total package size of my application and the 30 MB that the jupyterlab_plotly folder contributes is very significant.

Is there a way to tell pip to not include that folder, or do I have to manually remove this folder each time I want to do a deployment of my application?
