    Risk Assessment Form 3
    Due to the special circumstances brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, ALL students must include in their risk assessment how they will mitigate the spread of the disease while conducting their experiment. Examples of such mitigations include (but are not limited to):

    • Wearing a face covering while conducting experiments outside of the home environment.
    • Maintaining a 6-foot distance from people not in the researcher's immediate social cohort. 
    • Washing hands frequently.
    • Keeping work space clean and disinfected. This is especially important if the student is working in a shared space.
