Important information for CINT users

  • The safety and health of the CINT community and their families is our top priority. All visits must be arranged in advance with the CINT user support scientist to ensure appropriate occupancy of each lab space before coming on-site.
  • All CINT facilities, along with Los Alamos and Sandia National Laboratories, will follow updated CDC guidance requiring face coverings in all buildings, even for those who are vaccinated.
  • At this time both the Core and Gateway facilities are open to the CINT user community. The Core no longer requires a quarantine for users traveling from within the United States, the Gateway currently has a 1-week quarantine unless users are fully vaccinated. Visitors coming to the facilities from international destinations will still require a quarantine period. We will continue to follow all New Mexico and Lab COVID-19 requirements as they evolve.
  • Phased reopening plans. Find out more
  • If you have questions or if you have a user proposal related to COVID-19 research, please contact the CINT Program Leadership Team.
We extend our best wishes to your families, friends, and colleagues, as the world confronts the continued challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.
