COVID-19 Resources for Clinical Research

COVID-19 Resources

Welcome to the COVID-19 resource page for the Duke Office of Clinical Research. Here you will find important information on how the Duke research community is responding to the current public health crisis. This page is not meant to duplicate the Duke University COVID-19 page, or the Duke University Health System intranet sites found here:

Masking Changes in Low-Risk Ambulatory Clinics

As we continue to review and adjust our COVID-19 and respiratory illness protocols, Duke Health has made the decision that masking will be optional in ambulatory surgical centers and low-risk ambulatory clinics that are not attached to a hospital. Masking will continue to be required in hospital patient care areas, emergency departments, clinics within or contiguous with hospitals (e.g., Duke South clinics), oncology, and infusion clinics.

Please note: No changes are being made to masking requirements in emergency departments and hospital patient care areas at this time. Masking is still required as part of standard precautions for patients coming to a clinic with respiratory symptoms, any accompanying family/visitors, or for anyone caring for patients with respiratory symptoms; signage will be distributed to communicate that expectation. 

Thank you for your attention and commitment to patient and team member safety.
