Going back to ICG

Yesterday evening we had the good news that the presidency of our university approved our hygiene concept for the operation of our institute.

This means that we will be able to slowly start up our laboratory operations again on Monday under strict observance of hygiene measures.
The most important measure is that we had to form two independent teams, which are not allowed to meet personally in the coming weeks. 

We have decided that team A will now work in the laboratory from Monday - Wednesday and team B from Thursday - Saturday. 
In addition, offices are now only used alone. All in all, the distance rules must be observed.
After almost 6 weeks of "physical distancing" these are the first steps into a life with SARS-Cov-2 and laboratory work on a hopefully soon normal level.

I am very thankful to all staff members that we got through the weeks together, virtual meetings have contributed a lot and will accompany us over the next weeks or months. 

At the moment we just have to get used to the new conditions and be patient.
