Adoption of Stage 3 Guidelines

As many of you will have seen, the University just announced the start of  Stage 3 of Research Recovery.  I am sure we all look forward to reducing the COVID mitigation burden, while still maintaining high health and safety standards.

The University’s announcement leaves open several practical questions about managing shared research facilities like ours. As you understand, researchers and community human subjects are present at the CNI.  Some are vaccinated or have a recent negative COVID test, and  others not.  We have been asked to consider the situation – balancing risks and benefits – to establish the new rules.

We are in discussions at the CNI and with the Lucas team to fill in details of a new plan (SOP) for  Stage 3.  For the coming week, we will continue following the current guidelines and CNI SOP.  This means uniform mask wearing and disinfection processes will continue for all groups.  During this week, in consultation with many of our users and other centers, we will update the SOP and send you the new plan.  We wish we could have been ready for Monday, but there are a few too many issues to consider.

Thanks for your patience.

The CNI Team
