Resuming Research Guidelines 

Effective August 15, 2021 - May 31, 2022

Effective August 15, 2021 - May 31, 2022 field research by Brown employees and students continues to require special review as explained in the guidelines below.

On-site research work by members of the Brown community, and by essential research visitors or users of core research facilities, no longer requires special review. However, any in person work on campus by members of the Brown community or external visitors must continue to follow current Brown COVID-19 safety policies. It is strongly recommended that laboratories maintain a shared calendar with daily occupancy by lab personnel indicated in case the need for contact tracing arises.

For any field research on or after June 1, 2022, the OVPR special review requirements related to COVID-19 will not be in effect. Travel restrictions may remain; Please check current travel policies for travel documentation requirements.
