JHU COVID-19 Requirements for Visits by External Monitors and Site Initiation Visits


Updated  July 31, 2020

External Monitor Onsite Visits

Johns Hopkins University is postponing all external monitor onsite visits for clinical research protocols until at least August 31, 2020. We will inform the research community if the date for this policy needs to be extended.


Site Initiation Visits (SIVs)

All site initiation visits (SIVs) must take place remotely until at least August 31, 2020. Onsite SIVs for COVID-19 trials and other life-saving trials may be allowed in circumstances where these may not be performed remotely. In the event that an on-site SIV is required, study teams are expected to follow all policies related to COVID-19, including ensuring that visitors are screened prior to coming for an SIV.
