We will do everything reasonably possible to make sure you stay safe while participating in research studies. The University of Arizona has created internal guidance to assist research teams in minimizing transmission of COVID-19 in research spaces and in the community. We appreciate your participation in our study and willingness to abide by any new guidelines.
What are we, at the Arizona Canine Cognition Center, doing to protect research participants?
- Our research team members are vaccinated and do not come into work if they are showing any symptoms of COVID-19. We are also screening research participants (see Participant Wellness Screen below) for symptoms before commencing any research study visit.
- We may ask you to wear a mask when you come into the center for a study.
- Our research team members are required to wear appropriate personal protective equipment, including masks, during your visit.
Risks associated with COVID-19 infection are well known and we know that the disease can be obtained through close contact with someone who is sick or someone who has the virus but is not showing symptoms. While we have done everything possible to reduce transmission of COVID-19, we cannot guarantee that you will not be exposed to COVID-19 during your research visit.
Participation in research is valuable but also voluntary. If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact us at our email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (520) 621-2646. If it’s possible, we may be able to modify study procedures to address your concerns.
