Hours of Operation
Masks are no longer required but are recommended when using workstations in the RDC, due to the enclosed and limited space within the Centre. Medical level masks are available at the entrance inside the RDC for you to use. Prior to entering the RDC, researchers should sanitize their hands. Researchers should wipe down their workstation prior to and after use.
Anyone who tests positive must stay out of the RDC for at least 5 days and should not attend the RDC when sick.
