Covid-19 controls are no longer in place at the STFC-RAL site.  Control infrastructure is currently being removed.

Please note:
  • Whilst mask wearing is no longer a requirement it is advised in communal areas and confined spaces.
  • Although two metre social distancing will no longer be mandated, all site users are encouraged to be respectful and considerate of each other's personal space.
  • If you feel unwell with Covid-19 symptoms, you must not come to site. Please inform your host immediately and arrange a PCR test in line with current NHS guidance.  If you test positive for Covid-19, you must follow current NHS guidance for testing and self-isolate.  If you test negative, you may return to on-site work if you feel well enough to do so.
