For any Face-to-Face and/or Field (Off-Campus Research), please complete and submit the Face-to-Face and Off-Campus (F2FOC) COVID-19 Review Form. For clarity, this form replaced the Field Research Safety Planning Record.
This form is to be completed by the Academic Supervisor and submitted to the Department Chair (or equivalent) prior to departure on field research. Researchers should also review their department’s approval process for field (off-campus) research.
