Covid19 and the Microscope Facility
(updated Mon May 2, 2022)

The Microscope Facility is committed to the safety of all its users and its staff.  Covid19 is a serious disease that has often defied predictions.  As we continue to pursue research activities, we ask everyone to stay vigilant and responsive to any future changes.  We advocate matching and respecting the safety measures of other people, in recognition of their personal sensitivities.

As of May 2, universal masking is now required throughout the campus, including the Microscope Facility. The change in policy was announced Fri April 29th.

Thank you for your support and patience during these unprecedented times.
