 “You must electronically reserve your room

before entering DLAR spaces"

  1. Fully vaccinated individuals will no longer be required to wear face coverings or practice physical distancing.  Employees and students who are unvaccinated should continue to wear masks and physical distance in DLAR 
  2. Electronically room reserved are the new standard going forward in DLAR and required to enter DLAR.  The lab must have the space or laminar flow hood "LFH" signed out in order to be in the room.  
    1. Researchers must reserve rooms for the length of time they will be present in the room.   Please make sure to use that time, as others also need to use the room.
    2. Some animal rooms have multiple LFHs for multiple labs to use the room at the same time.  
  3. Researchers must disinfect work areas before starting and after.  Examples: LFH buttons, isoflurane knobs, tables/counter tops, handles to drawers, cabinets and carts
