Message from the MagLab Director regarding the COVID-19

Here at the MagLab, we value the health and safety of our staff, users, visitors and community.

The MagLab continues facilitating important high magnetic field research across our three sites with extra precautions in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19. We invite users to request magnet time at https://nationalmaglab.org/user-resources/request-magnet-time or contact their MagLab Facility Director or scientific host about remote access, sending samples, working with on-site collaborators, and other ways to conduct high magnetic field experiments.

At this time, the lab will also consider on-site user access for a very small number of US-based users who have a scientific reason to be on-site to enable a critical experiment. These requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis with directors’ approval. Work with your facility director/host to request on-site permission.

We anticipate returning to normal operations, complete with hosting all users on-site, by September. At all times, responsible agency directives (for example, DOE for LANL), state guidelines (NM, FL), institutional policies (FSU, UF, LANL), and local facility management implementations will govern on-site user access. This will require adaptability as conditions and requirements evolve with time.

The lab will not host public groups or schools/students at this time while we work to maintain a safe and healthy environment for our on-site staff, researchers, and users. We anticipate having everyone back at the lab soon, but until then, please continue to explore our virtual tour and Magnet Academy to fulfill your spark for knowledge.  

Thank you for your understanding during these challenging times,

Greg Boebinger
