The Office of the Vice President for Research is providing guidance related to human subjects-related research visits to align clinical research practice with the required Universal Masking Policies for all clinical and non-clinical faculty, staff and administrators.
- It is the responsibility of the Study PI to ensure that appropriate PPE, including masks for all staff, is available to the coordinator or research staff.
- Essential research visits, those with therapeutic benefit and performed in the University Hospitals and Clinics or in other areas of the Institution, MUST comply with Universal Masking policies.
- In-person non-essential research visits should cease.
