* Read Caltech's [https://together.caltech.edu/returning-to-campus Coronavirus Information Website] for the most up-to-date guidelines and resources.
* While all members of the community are still required to check for symptoms of illness before reporting on-site, the Health Attestation Log is no longer required to be used. Individuals who are ill or experiencing symptoms of illness are not to come to campus or report for on-site work. 
* As of April 22, 2022, high-quality masks (surgical, N95s, KN95s, or KF95s) must be worn in all indoor locations on campus, including athletic facilities. Exceptions to this rule can be made when an individual is alone in a space or is actively eating or drinking.  
* All unvaccinated individuals reporting to campus must participate in [http://together.caltech.edu/cases-testing-and-tracing/covid-19-testing Caltech's on-campus COVID surveillance testing]. Individuals who have submitted proof of full vaccination will no longer need to participate in the Institute's surveillance testing program when they report to campus. However, individuals may not voluntarily remove themselves from the surveillance testing program; an individual's fully vaccinated status must be confirmed through the [https://www.imss.caltech.edu/services/administrative-applications/my-covid-19-vaccination-documentation Institute's COVID-19 Vaccination Documentation application]. Individuals who do not report regularly to campus or who have other questions about the testing program and how it applies to them, may find additional information on the [https://caltech.us11.list-manage.com/track/click?u=0657df8937aa6f6a60b025e79&id=5bf5e82183&e=67c25d55fb Caltech Together site] or contact [mailto:covid19@caltech.edu covid19@caltech.edu].
* Individuals who are ill or experiencing symptoms of illness are not to come to campus or report for on-site work. 
*All employees and students who have not documented their vaccination status with the Institute are considered unvaccinated and will be required to wear a face covering in all indoor environments. A surgical mask (provided by KNI) or a personal face covering / respirator with a beard cover over it as a cleanroom barrier may also continue to be used by those individuals. This was the requirement for everyone through Phase 4.
* All Caltech students, employees, and external affiliates must comply with campus [https://together.caltech.edu/cases-testing-and-tracing/vaccination vaccination requirements].  
*Unvaccinated community members and unvaccinated campus visitors are required to wear a face covering when accessing indoor public spaces.
* Individuals who do not report regularly to campus or who have other questions about the testing program and how it applies to them, may find additional information on the [https://together.caltech.edu/ Caltech Together site] or contact [mailto:covid19@caltech.edu covid19@caltech.edu].
*Fully vaccinated individuals who prefer to wear a face covering may continue to do so. We hope that all members of our community will show respect for different individual decisions.<br /><br />

KNI Lab Rules and Safety Documents

KNI Lab Rules

All KNI users must follow the guidelines listed below, including the updated general SOPs for entry and exit and Labrunr tool reservations. In order to protect the safety of all KNI lab users and staff, repeated violations to these policies will result in revocation of lab access.

Current Phase: 5
  • Effective June 24, 2021 at 8:00 am, lab members will be able to use the KNI 24 hours per day, 7 days per week with increased density per the documents found below.

Mandatory protocols for the phased re-opening of the KNI Lab:

  • Read Caltech's Coronavirus Information Website for the most up-to-date guidelines and resources.
  • As of April 22, 2022, high-quality masks (surgical, N95s, KN95s, or KF95s) must be worn in all indoor locations on campus, including athletic facilities. Exceptions to this rule can be made when an individual is alone in a space or is actively eating or drinking.
  • Individuals who are ill or experiencing symptoms of illness are not to come to campus or report for on-site work. 
  • All Caltech students, employees, and external affiliates must comply with campus vaccination requirements.
  • Individuals who do not report regularly to campus or who have other questions about the testing program and how it applies to them, may find additional information on the Caltech Together site or contact covid19@caltech.edu.
    • KNI Lab Entrance/Exit Room B207 - Phase 5: Four people are allowed to use the entrance gowning room at the same time: Social distancing is in effect in the "No Standing Zone".
