Guidance related to COVID-19 and associated impacts on animal subjects research at OSU -- Updated July 7, 2021

Effective June 21, the research resumption approval process is no longer in use. OSU is currently operating under the Safety and Success Plan, Pathway to Fall. Under this guidance, in-person and on-site research and fieldwork are allowed. While resumption approvals are no longer required to either initiate or resume IACUC-approved activities, researchers must still follow the OSU Safety and Success policy with regard to physical distancing, face covering or PPE use requirements, or other applicable health authority requirements when conducting research activities.
