Current Lab status – 10/6/2020

Things are back to the pre-wildfire mid-COVID normal. See the Lab Flow Report for details.

We continue to follow COVID-19 work protocols lowering the risks of occurrence among lab personnel.

The University work resumption processes continue as well. The main impact on the Lab is that USPS deliveries only occur on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. All other deliveries are received on a daily basis.

As always, we appreciate your business.
