Following McMaster’s lead, the CCEM will be moving into our Phase 2 of re-opening. What does this mean? The Centre will now be open to non-staff users that are trained to work independently and to those scheduled to receive in-person training with CCEM staff. In-person access to the CCEM requires the following:
- Users familiarize themselves with and follow all COVID-19 protocols in place by the CCEM, the university, and other university departments and offices – including the mandatory use of face masks for indoor, public spaces.
- Users book their instrument time in advance using NanoLIMS, or by arranging time with CCEM staff
Note that during this phase we are limiting instrument room occupancy to a maximum of 1 person (with an exception of 2 people for training by CCEM staff).
Detailed CCEM COVID-19 protocols can be found on the CCEM File Server (https://ccemdata.mcmaster.ca/published/ccem-covid-19/).
The CCEM also remains open to receiving jobs for analysis by our staff.
If you have any further questions regarding our limited re-opening please contact the Acting Manager.
