UPDATED 3/25/2020: CNF Closed as of Noon, Tuesday, March 17
At the present time a re-opening date for the CNF cleanroom has not been established. We will keep you posted and let you know as soon as things develop. Our goal is to keep the Users informed on all evolving cleanroom updates. We continue to hold the open technical session on Wednesday afternoons with the Program Managers and Staff to discuss your technical projects and challenges. Please contact our Program Managers at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a virtual meeting, either during the regular Wednesday afternoon time slot (1:30 pm to 3:00 pm ), or at another mutually convenient time. Continue to check the CNF website and User email for updates.
Given the heightened risk of COVID-19 transmissions and to better protect the CNF staff and community, we have been directed by the Provost and Vice Provost of Research to close the Cornell NanoScale Science and Technology Facilities (CNF) by noon on Tuesday March 17th. This includes the CNF offices, 2nd floor labs, break room, and the CAD room. The CNF will remain closed for the foreseeable future.
Please use today and tomorrow morning to complete any experiments and retrieve any items you may need during the shutdown. The CNF Staff will be using the next couple of days to safely shut down the facilities. The CNF Staff and Management will be available during the shutdown via phone and email.
Continue to check the CNF website and user email for updates. Please continue to exercise prudence in your daily lives in an ongoing effort to protect our communities.
We are all aware of COVID-19 and we need to make sure that the CNF community and visitors follow the Cornell University policies regarding the outbreak of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19. Please stay updated on issues and restrictions related to the virus.
