Health and Human Development Return to Research Plan

We must recognize that COVID-19 is a potentially serious and very infectious disease. It is incumbent on all of us to protect the health and safety of all individuals and to preserve the capacity of our healthcare systems. We must work together to balance on-campus work activities while protecting the health and safety of the workforce and the broader community.

While remaining focused on the health and well-being of our community, we are planning for an increase in on-campus research-related activities to accompany in-person, on-campus instruction for Fall 2021 semester.

We will continue to follow guidelines being implemented by the University around campus, including established personal safety practices.

Note: Throughout this guidance, “on-campus” includes any university facility or field site, including home/school visits.

Process for Research Groups to Request Access to Campus Facilities

Researchers who wish to return to or increase on-campus research activities should complete the HHD Return to Research Request for any personnel not already approved, and email to (please cc:, your department head or center director, and lead staff support).

Preparation for Potential Ramp Down

Principal investigators should develop a plan for a quick ramp-down of research-related activities to a level associated with that of an earlier phase.  If a ramp-down is needed, consult the EHS Laboratory Ramp Down Checklist.
