NSRRC Preventative Measures for Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic
(Effective on 2021/07/27, adjusted whenever necessary.)

* NSRRC will uphold any and all measures announced by Taiwan Centers for Disease Control (CDC) when tackling conditions not addressed in this document.

Access Control for Users
  1. 1. All experiments will be conducted through mail in and remote access. Please contact the beamline spokespersons for all necessary arrangements and preparations.
  2. 2. In order to make steps towards a normal return to operation, the NSRRC will select a small fraction of users to return on site, based on the space capacity of each beamline facility. Our beamline spokespersons are reaching out to those approved users. Please follow our COVID-19 working protocols and preventative measures detailed below.
    1. (1) It is mandatory to have your temperature taken, and scan the QR code to link and complete the Contact Information Form (Form 2) at the NSRRC main gate before your entry. Access to campus is not permitted if a fever (37.5 °C or higher) is detected. Daily temperature screening is required when inside the NSRRC; use Form 3 and hand it in to the User Administration & Promotion Office one day before you leave the NSRRC. If you are exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms when on site, you must follow the CDC protocol and notify the NSRRC Epidemic Prevention Team (safety@nsrrc.org.tw) of your situation.
    2. (2) You are not allowed to go to other endstations, buildings, labs, offices, etc., other than the beamline area you are permitted to work in.  
    3. (3) Food is only allowed during daytime hours in the cafeteria and at nighttime in the user lounge, on the 2nd floor of the storage rings. You must comply with the appropriate social distancing.
    4. (4) If shutdown of TLS/TPS operation is announced, the above access control for users will not be applicable. All users shall not be permitted to enter the NSRRC during shutdown. Any special request should be reviewed and handled by beamline spokespersons and the Epidemic Prevention Team.
Note: All measures will be continuously adjusted according to the government’s policies. We will do our best to keep you updated. NSRRC reserves the right of final interpretation for the content hereinabove.

* The requirements for students of the NSRRC Joint Graduate Programs to apply for the entry permission will be announced by the Joint Graduate Program Committee. The secretary (tseng.tina@nsrrc.org.tw) will inform the Security Guard Office of the permitted students (name & time) before Monday.
* The NSRRC Guesthouse is open to users (approved to be on site) and staff. Each room will be occupied by one person only.
