FHS exam suspension due to COVID19 pandemic

Last Updated March 30, 2020, 04:00PM EST:


Dear FHS Community,

We are thinking of you and hope you are healthy.

As precautionary measure to limit any potential exposure to COVID-19, the Framingham Heart Study is suspending ALL in-person examinations of FHS study participants (including all research center and off-site visits) starting Friday, March 13th through Friday, May 1 2020.

This is a precautionary measure to limit any potential exposure to COVID-19, and is being taken due to the voluntary nature of the exam.

FHS leadership is continuing to evaluate the situation daily and will provide updates on an ongoing basis.

FHS participants please see the linked letter for additional details.

Warm regards,

The Framingham Heart Study
