COVID-19 Update - July 29, 2021
The University has released updated guidance regarding the wearing of face coverings in all University facilities beginning July 30, 2021.
Principal investigators are asked to update their approved COVID-19 safety plans based on these updated guidelines. Updated plans do not need to be re-reviewed by OPRS or DRS. If a research group or members of a research group encounter issues implementing changes to their safety plan, they should seek guidance from their Unit Head or the Division of Research Safety.
If a research protocol does not already include in-person procedures, an amendment is required to request IRB approval for the addition of in-person procedures.
OPRS staff continue to work remotely and all meetings are being held virtually. Staff are happy to arrange Zoom meetings or conference calls with researchers by request. If you are in need of a consultation related to an IRB protocol, please provide OPRS with more information by providing our office with a request form.
