SMIF and Duke University COVID POLICIES
Face masks are no longer required to be worn inside most campus facilties for vaccinated individuals. Facemasks are still required for in-person classes. In keeping with Duke policy, we are no longer requiring masks to be worn inside SMIF, except during equipment training sessions with a SMIF staff member. Equipment training sessions fall under the "in person class" rule that Duke has established.
All campus buildings are open and do not require card access. The main entrance to SMIF is now open from 8am-6pm Mon-Fri, and card access is not needed for SMIF entry during these hours. You will still need card access to enter the cleanroom or the B606 basement lab.
Duke University is requiring all students, faculty, and staff to be vaccinated against COVID. SMIF requires the same vaccination status for our external users as is required for our Duke users, namely, that they be vaccinated or have a religious or medical exemption. You will not be allowed access to SMIF if you have not been vaccinated or have an exemption. Please submit proof of vaccination (e.g., a photo of your vaccination card) or reason for exemption to email@example.com .
The Shared Materials Instrumentation Facility (SMIF) at Duke University is an interdisciplinary, shared resource open to Duke University researchers from all schools and departments—as well as to users from other universities, government laboratories and industry.
