Return to Tucson office information

24 June 2021

The following information is applicable to staff voluntarily returning to the office during an initial period that will run for two weeks from 28 June and will be assessed on 7 July.

  1. Masks: you don’t need to wear a mask while in your office with the door closed. When elsewhere, you do need to mask up unless eating or outdoors with distance of 6ft. Use the masks provided at the entrances, not your own. Do not re-use the provided mask.
  2. Sanitation: sanitizer stations are located at many points in each building. Please use soap and water when possible rather than hand sanitizer.  Germicidal spray and paper towels are located at the station for additional santizing/cleaning. Custodial staff clean all surfaces daily.
  3. Office Chairs: if you have relocated your office chair to your home, please borrow one from a nearby office (wiping down upon returning it at the end of the day).
  4. Equipment: if you have relocated your monitor and periferals to your home, please choose an office day when you are comfortable working on your laptop. 
  5. Common areas: meeting rooms and kitchen areas will remain inaccessible.
  6. Water: water fountains remain closed, but water bottle filling stations are all opened. They have been run periodically with filters checked. They are regularly sanitized.
  7. Restrooms: only 1 person should use a restroom at a time. When you are ready to exit the restroom, please use the provided cleaning wipes and disinfectant to wipe down any surfaces you have touched including faucet and door handles. Keep the wipe with you as you exit and wipe down the exterior door handle; discard the cleaning wipe in the closed trashcan as you exit.
  8. Trash: do not leave your used PPE in your workspace trash receptacle. Facilities provides closed, foot-operated receptacles near building entrances/exits to dispose of your used PPE each day, including masks, wipes, gloves, and other materials. These bins are clearly marked for PPE disposal and should be used for this purpose only.

Financial support for Rubin Observatory comes from the National Science Foundation (NSF) through Cooperative Agreement No. 1258333, the Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science under Contract No. DE-AC02-76SF00515, and private funding raised by the LSST Corporation. The NSF-funded Rubin Observatory Project Office for construction was established as an operating center under management of the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy (AURA).  The DOE-funded effort to build the the Rubin Observatory LSST Camera (LSSTCam) is managed by the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory (SLAC).
The National Science Foundation (NSF) is an independent federal agency created by Congress in 1950 to promote the progress of science. NSF supports basic research and people to create knowledge that transforms the future.
NSF and DOE will continue to support Rubin Observatory in its Operations phase. They will also provide support for scientific research with LSST data.
