Updated COVID-19 Guidelines for Human Subject Research (August 12, 2021)

In light of the current status of COVID-19 infection rates, additional guidance pertaining to Vulnerable and High Risk populations has been generated:

Vulnerable and High Risk Populations
This includes children under 12 years of age, unvaccinated individuals, immunocompromised individuals, or anyone at an increased risk of COVID-19 infection (according to CDC guidance: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/need-extra-precautions/index.html).  In addition to the stated mask and physical distancing guidance, face shields must be worn if interacting with high-risk or vulnerable populations on campus for research purposes.

Masks must be worn by all and physical distancing practiced during in-person Human Subject Research activities when possible.  We ask that you continue to exercise best and safe practices as we move forward. 

Please reach out to irb@umd.edu or askresearchadmin@umd.edu with any questions.
