Updated COVID-19 Pre-Screener

Dear Research Community,

The IRB Office has updated the COVID-19 Pre-Screener that can be utilized to pre-screen human participants and any individual who must accompany the participant before they come on campus for in-person research study visits. Researchers who are not conducting study visits at a clinical facility must use this pre-screening tool. Researchers conducting study visits at a clinical facility should use the hospital/clinic’s screening protocol.

Please visit the IRB Office COVID-19 Resources webpage that contains resources and guidance for conducting human participants research during this time, including the document mentioned above. The page can be accessed from the homepage of the IRB Office website and will be routinely monitored and updated as needed. Please also continue to reference the Office for Research COVID-19 Updates webpage.

If you have questions about the above in regards to your human research project, please contact the IRB Office at or

Thank you,

Northwestern University IRB Office
