Research has returned to full capacity
New guidelines for SIP :
- Masks covering mouth and nose and without exhalation valves are required indoors regardless of vaccination status starting 08/13/2021.
- Find more details about the mask mandate at CU Boulder and about campus updates on the campus Covid-19 website.
- Physical distancing is not required anymore. Different users can use instruments in the same room at the same time.
- We have changed from signing up for rooms/space to signing up for instruments.
- I strongly recommend that people do not crowed space at the instruments unnecessarily, even without the strict requirement for distancing. People not involved/needed for an experiment should not “hang out” at the instruments.
- Users should still use the spray bottles/paper towels to wipe everything down after use.

- The more specialized instruments (see list below) have returned to the Google Calendar system we used before the pandemic. We are using the same Google Calendars we used before Covid-19. If you had access before, you should still have it.
- New users will get access to the calendar after the initial training.
- Sign up using the Google calendar, but don’t forget to sign the paper log at each instrument.
