Research Activities on Campus (COVID-19)

Posted on: Dec 9, 2020

As you know, we are in the middle of the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, and have reached high numbers of this disease in the region.

We would like to remind you that, although some Critical and Time-Sensitive research activities may be carried out on campus, written authorization is required. The use of face masks in research spaces while on campus is mandatory. Regular Research activities on campus are still not allowed. For definitions, please see below.

Visitors on Campus are currently not allowed (please visit this webpage for updates on this subject). On-campus human research activities that include participants (e.g., in person interviews, group activities, etc.) are not allowed. Online (off-campus) activities with participants are still permitted, provided that appropriate approval for the protocol by the Research Ethics Board is in place.

For clarity purposes, this requirement does not apply to curricular research (i.e., research projects that are part of a course), as those are under the control of each Department and Faculty.

We will keep restrictions in place as per Alberta’s Relaunch Strategy along with the ongoing advice and recommendations of Alberta’s Chief Medical Officer of Health. These restrictions and recommendations will be respected at all times. All faculty members, staff and students must follow the Protocol for On-Campus Attendance, which can be found here
