We strongly recommend to use medical/FFP2 masks

For your own and the staff's safety we strongly recommend that masks are worn in all indoor areas.
Please wear masks when coming to the User Office to show your test result and get the routing slip signed.

When working close with others we recommend to use FFP2 masks.
In addition, please keep distance to other persons (max. three persons), which also means that you should restrict the number of persons being together in the beamline hutches and laboratories whenever possible.

Allowed number of onsite participants

There is no restriction in the numbers of participants anymore. However, please reconsider the number of onsite experimenters and keep the group reasonably small.
