Temporary guidelines related to COVID-19 protocol revisions

Due to the unprecedented COVID-19 emergency, investigators may be required to alter their protocols in ways to minimize the spread of this virus. The following outlines when or if the IRB needs to be notified.


Effective March 24, 2020


Effective immediately, the University will use the following guidelines when assessing whether specific human subject research projects may continue at UF. These guidelines are for human subject research only, pertinent only during the current COVID-19 epidemic, and will be in place until removed by the UF Vice President for Research. Since this crisis is fluid, these recommendations may change over time.
