The MRC facility has been reopened for all Internal and External users with a cohort module of 40% at any time. There will be two shifts, A and B. The cohort module will be starting from July 27th, 2020. Please see details here Hello MRC outside users.pdf.
Training protocol at MRC during COVID-19
- We have received permission from the Vice President’s office to resume training, but under more restrictive conditions than prior to the pandemic. So, response times may be longer than usual.
- Training in groups may not be possible in order to maintain 6’ social distancing except for the acid and solvent hoods where more than one person may be accommodated as per the trainers.
- The trainers and trainees will be allowed to work at close quarters, less than 6’ apart, if necessary, but it is recommended that they keep those interactions to less than 15 minutes per training session. This also applies to researchers who might occasionally need to work together at close quarters.
Cohort A: 6 am to noon
Cohort B: 1 pm to 2 am
Please contact your supervisor to know your Cohort label. Please follow a particular shift you are assigned to until further notice.
