Requests for exception to university requirements

VCU has issued specific requirements for individuals to return to research activities. These include physical distancing requirements and mandatory face coverings.

Some research activities may require an exception to these requirements, for example, animal surgeries or unmasked interactions with individual human subjects. Principal investigators are expected to prepare a plan for mitigating the risk of transmission and submit that plan for approval prior to beginning these activities.  

Should you need to submit a request for exception, please email rescomply@vcu.edu. The request form and instructions will be sent to you for completion and submission.
