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: 3
  • Effective Saturday, September 26, 2020, at 12:00 noon, lab members will be able to use the KNI 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.

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

  • Read and follow Caltech's Coronavirus Information Guidelines on Returning to Campus
  • For each day you are on campus, fill out Caltech's Health Attestation and Self-Reported Contact and Location Log:
    • Caltech users: Fill out the online version of the log via Click the "COVID-19 Reporting" link in the Self Service section.
    • Non-Caltech users: This log can be printed out or saved to your electronic device. Be sure to fill it out daily and keep record of it.
  • The KNI Lab’s safety, hygiene, density, and physical distancing requirements:
  • Training for both returning and new lab members will continue with the hybrid remote and limited in-person equipment and new user/general safety training plans that began during earlier phases.
  • The KNI technical staff members will operate on an alternating daily in-lab schedule, e.g. 3 staff are in-lab M, W, F, and the other staff members are in-lab on T, Th. Staff will either be working in their offices or telecommuting on the days they do not report to the lab.Some delay in response to equipment requests is to be expected.
