Updated Guidance for Research Visitors

Published July 14, 2021

The guidance for research visitors has been revised. Visitors participating in research are allowed on the Medical and Danforth Campuses when an on-campus presence is necessary to fulfill the mission. All visitors must have a host who will be responsible for ensuring the visitor follows our public health guidelines. The university no longer requires plans or plan revisions for research visitors to be submitted to the School or Department for approval. However, Department/Institutes/Center leaders remain responsible for ensuring/monitoring the safety of their personnel, operations, and facilities, and may choose to continue to require plans or other measures to support safety and research success in their areas.

The Danforth Campus allows visitors, but they must complete the visitor self-screening within four hours of entering campus and must be familiar with and adhere to campus masking and distancing guidelines.

The School of Medicine also requires visitors to complete COVID-19 screening. All campus visitors can use the visitors screening tool, and present the results to a screening station when entering campus.
