Dear LBNL Colleagues,
Power was restored to the Lab’s main site Monday evening, however, the Lab remains closed to all but those on the emergency-essential list. Please do not report to the site unless you are specifically called in or are a part of building restart activities. Both the Lab’s main site and our offsite locations are not expected to be impacted by future Public Safety Power Shutdowns associated with this weather event.
The Lab’s Emergency Operations Center (EOC) is fully staffed. Operations and research staff are working on a 12-hour rotating shift to make buildings safe and stable for reoccupation. The EOC is presently working to fully restore operations to re-open the Lab on Wednesday, October 30, however, no final decision has been made. We will keep you updated throughout the process.
The Lab’s offsite locations, including JGI in Walnut Creek, remain open at this time, and there is no indication at this time that any of the Lab’s offsite locations will be closed today. For work locations on the UC Berkeley campus, refer to instructions from https://news.berkeley.edu.
Please stay informed by checking for updates on status.lbl.gov, at 1-800-445-5830, and on a new Twitter account for Lab staff, users, and others: @LBNLstatus.
Deputy Director, Operations and
Chief Operating Officer
