I’m very pleased to announce the Lab’s main hill site will reopen tomorrow, Wednesday, Oct. 30, at 6 a.m. All buildings will be ready for occupancy. If we need to change the status of a building, we will let you know as soon as possible.
Site access: The Lab’s main hill site remains closed to all but emergency-essential personnel until the Lab reopens on Wednesday at 6 a.m.
Red Flag Warning: The Lab’s main site is under a Red Flag Warning through Wednesday at 4 p.m. Please take precautions and read more about red flag warning conditions at the Lab.
Safety: Due to high winds, you may encounter debris on roadways and walking paths. In addition, as you return to work, please enter all work areas cautiously, observe and evaluate conditions, and note anything that does not seem right. If you see a safety concern, immediately notify your supervisor. You can use this laboratory and office re-entry sheet to guide you in checking for hazards.
Status of Lab services:
Gate traffic: All gates will be open at 6 a.m We expect gate congestion between 6 a.m to 7 a.m. tomorrow based on our last PSPS re-opening, so consider choosing a later arrival time to reduce gate congestion.
Cafeteria: to be determined, check for updates
Lab Shuttles: Full service
Site custodial services: Full service
Guest House: Occupants able to return Oct. 30 after 3 p.m.
Health services: Full service
Please see the Return to Work Information document for details, which will be updated as needed. If you don’t see information about a Lab service that is critical to you, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
Thank you for your patience, and I look forward to welcoming you back to the Lab tomorrow. After several days of an incredible effort by hundreds of employees, the Lab’s main site will be ready to once again fulfill our science mission.
