BioPACIFIC MIP Laboratories COVID-19 Scheduling Information

Recent announcements

  • BioPACIFIC MIP Laboratories COVID-19 Scheduling Information


Work in Elings Hall under the Campus’ COVID Phase 4 guidelines will be much different than they were before the shutdown. Research will ramp-up slowly so that we can be certain that the work environment is as safe as possible. Some of the most significant changes:

  • Occupancy within Elings Hall will be limited. Safe distancing, disinfection, health screening and PPE requirements are described in the SOPs.
  • Occupancy in 2411, 2419, and 2436B will be limited to one person at a time in each lab. If there are no problems we may increase this to two people at a time, safely separated.
  • Researchers need to schedule their lab time in advance: in general schedule requests will be due on Tuesday night for the week beginning the following Monday. Schedule changes will be made using FBS
  • There will be no regularly scheduled training classes - special circumstances will be addressed individually.

Scheduling Information for Current Users:

The laboratories are be open from 9am - midnight. Users who have completed the CNSI and BioPACIFIC MIP laboratory attestations may schedule work time in the labs using FBS.
