Coronavirus Update - 02/07/2020
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued new guidance on February 5, 2020, intended to prevent the spread of the coronavirus (2019-nCoV). As result of the new guidance and due to the recent acceleration of 2019-nCoV transmission across China, Argonne has updated its site access protocols for users, visitors, and staff.
Users and visitors who have arrived in the U.S. after travel to or through mainland China on February 3 or later are requested to reschedule their visit to Argonne for a time at least 15 days after their date of arrival to the U.S.
We continue to ask all users and visitors who are ill, particularly if they are exhibiting respiratory symptoms, including fever, cough and difficulty breathing, to reschedule their visit and seek medical guidance.
This is a temporary measure that will help Argonne maintain a safe, healthy, and productive workplace. We appreciate your patience and willingness to help stop the spread of this virus. Continue to check back with us for updates.
