Updated Research Safety Guidance

Beginning Monday April 19, research groups already approved to be on campus may have more of their faculty, student and research staff join them in the return to in-person work. Research personnel may be increased to double their current in-person occupancy. More details about SDSU's updated research capacity and safety guidance can be found in a 4/15 SDSU Flex communication and on DRI's COVID-19 updates page.

 
 

OnBase Forms

OnBase forms are now required for all requests related to research repopulation. The easy-to-use form streamlines the application process, and is best viewed using a desktop computer with an up-to-date web browser. 

How to access and use OnBase forms

 
 

Vaccine Eligibility

All adults over the age of 16 are now eligible to be vaccinated in California! For the protection of others, the standard safety criteria are also required for fully vaccinated individuals. This includes physical distancing and wearing a face mask at all times while on campus.

Ensure Testing Compliance

All student researchers must be tested for COVID-19 every other week. Research leaders must check WebPortal to ensure students have received university clearance prior to each work shift. You must be logged into your SDSU account to view the instructions. Student who have been vaccinated for COVID-19 must still receive biweekly testing and comply with safety guidelines.

Report COVID-19 Cases

If you or someone involved in your project has tested positive for COVID-19, you must ensure the university is informed.

Ask the individual to fill out SDSU's reporting form. To ensure reporting is completed and Student Health Services is aware, the research leader must also submit this form. If the individual is an SDSU Research Foundation employee, they should also complete the COVID-19 Reporting Form for SDSURF Employees. The affected employee must also immediately stop participating in research.
