Over the past few months the global spread of the coronavirus COVID-19 has accelerated, and the US Center for Disease Control (CDC) is predicting widespread infection in this country over the next few weeks/months. Information on the virus can be found at: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html.
In response to this health threat, AUI (the managing organization of the Green Bank Observatory) has adopted travel restrictions, revised workplace practices, and new policies in an attempt to minimize exposure to, and spread of, the virus in the workplace. Included within this response is the restriction of all travel to and from AUI sites and the postponement of all large meetings, workshops, and gatherings. This includes the Green Bank Observatory.
As a result, the Green Bank Observatory and Arecibo Observatory Single Dish and Observer Training Workhops, originally scheduled for May 11-20, are being postponed. We are actively working to find alternative dates and will inform you as soon as new dates have been set.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your understanding.
