Current status - February 2021

CLS is in normal operations, with limited staff working onsite and strict safety protocols. No visitors are allowed.

Due to local public health restrictions requiring all international travellers to self-isolate for 14 days, no international users are permitted onsite.

Since local public health recommendations also include limiting inter-provincial travel, only a limited number of local Saskatchewan users have onsite access, after receiving authorization from the relevant beamline responsible scientist and completing the required safety training. We are taking this extra precaution to minimize exposure to our staff and their families.

Researchers in other locations are continuing to use the CLS through remote access. In an effort to help fight this global pandemic, we have a special call for proposals for any work that will actively contribute to finding COVID-related treatments or vaccines, or improve conditions for frontline workers. This call is open to researchers from any institution, in any location.

For information on how to submit a proposal or access the CLS, please visit our users webpages or contact us.
