Valued Members of our Community,
May 26, 2021
As society adjusts to the diminishing impacts of Covid 19 and CDC guidelines evolve, clients have sought our guidance on how best to approach research projects. As a result, we wanted to update our Covid 19 policies to help our clients and you, our members, get back to effectively conducting in-person research.
L&E will always continue to maintain the highest level of safety and sanitation. Safety is the driver in our policy, and the various audiences we must consider:
- We’ll be following local directives on mask wearing policies. Therefore you may or may not be asked to wear masks to the facility but will need to remove them during the study if needed.
- If clients, other participants or fellow teammates ask for masks to be worn in their presence in the lobby areas, our core values, such as “Be a good teammate” and “Do the right thing,” drive us to respect the rights of others, so we can better understand the other’s position (i.e. empathy). Our team understands this, and thus will keep masks handy as needed.
- As vaccines have become widely available, and CDC guidelines have relaxed on social distancing, our members may be invited to participate in in-person focus groups that may or may not be social-distanced.
It’s been a long 15 months! But we are starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel towards a return to pre-pandemic procedures. We look forward to welcoming you again to our facilities, and seeing the magic of in-person research come alive again.
