COVID-19 Research Update

Dear Colleagues,

As a reminder, University of Utah’s onsite research is still restricted to Limited Research Activities” ONLY while the U remains in the Orange Phase, (see the Research Alert Levels table for more information.) As the number of positive Coronavirus cases increases in Utah, we strongly urge our research community to remain diligent in all hygiene and protective efforts, and practice caution with all onsite research activities.

The Face Covering PolicyBridge Training and Attestation Form for Faculty and Staff, and the Undergraduate Employees in Onsite Research Guidelines are now in effect for any individual currently conducting research onsite under Orange Phase. Please also note that face coverings are now mandatory in all UofU campus buildings.

Thank you for your continued support as we strive to provide updated information and guidance on the VPR website as quickly as possible. We appreciate all of your hard work to keep limited research operations running smoothly and safely during these challenging events.
