Coronavirus: information, measures and recommendations

Last updated:  6 July 2020 (Monday)

Since the 18th May CERN is implementing a flexible and safe 16-week plan for the gradual re-start of on-site activities, supported by COVID-19-specific health and safety measures. 

This webpage collates information regarding the COVID-19 related health and safety measures and recommendations that accompany the gradual re-start of on-site activities.  These are based on the Memorandum from the Director General issued on the 5th of May, and its Annex 'CERN Instructions on COVID-19-related health and safety measures' and its Appendix as well as  the 'CERN Instructions on COVID-19-related health and safety measures for contractors'. 

The measures and recommendations are updated regularly . 

Our highest priority continues to be protecting the health and well-being of all people on site and those working remotely. 

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) for CERN personnel, are available on a dedicated page.
