Welcome to the CCMR Shared Facilities

COVID-19 Specific Information:

Facility users are expected to:

  • Quarantine for 14 days if traveling from a location greater than 50-miles from Ithaca, NY.
  • Perform approved research only and to adhere to the reactivation plan of their research group. External industry or academic users must submit a COVID-19 external user agreement form.
  • Request instrument time or service through this Google form.
  • Follow the Cornell Health Protection Procedure prior to arriving on campus each day.
  • Bring their own cloth mask (no relief valves) and protective eye-wear with side shields.
  • Wear cloth masks and protective eye-wear at all times in facility rooms.

Important facility policies (at this time):

  • No in-person trainings or in-person assistance at this time. Staff will be as creative as possible with remote assistance, but some things will not be possible.
  • In order for the greatest flexibility for staff assistance, staff labor charges will be waived for Cornell academic users to June 30, 2020.
  • No consuming of food or drink in any shared facility space.
  • Buffer times of 1-2 hours between reservations to allow time for air exchanges and for staff to disinfect work areas.
  • Occupancy limits of rooms will be posted and strictly enforced.
  • Instruments may only be used by the person for whom reserved in FOM. Instances requiring deviations from this must be approved by staff before the reservation time slot.
  • For the safety of our students, staff and families, and the broader community, we expect full compliance with these policies. There will be zero-tolerance  for violations or unfamiliarity of these policies.
