This page will be kept to-up-date with information regarding the review status for all risk levels, in order to provide the research community with information on what the Face-to-Face COVID-19 Review Committee (F2FCRC) and the University’s Research Ethics Boards (REBs) are able to review at any given time.
As of March 21, 2022 the Face-to-Face (F2F) COVID-19 review process has moved to an attestation model as part of the ethics submission process. Researchers who submit an ethics protocol are expected to review and adhere to the following guidance documents, where applicable, and to local public health requirements:
- General Workplace Guidelines (GWG)
- U of T Guidance for Recovery of Human Research during the COVID-19 Pandemic
- Guidance on research and travel during the COVID-19 pandemic
- Vaccination Guidance for Human Participant Face-to-face (F2F) Research
For studies that involve international travel, researchers should review the Safety Abroad in an Emergency webpage and graduate students requesting travel must register with the Safety Abroad Office. Please also review the Government of Canada's COVID-19 Travel, Testing and Borders webpage for additional information.
