As of September 1st, 2020 the UZH corona safety concept mandates that a mask must be worn in all publicly accessible indoor areas. When delivering protein samples to PCC, you must wear a face mask from the moment you enter an UZH building.

Also adhere to the following federal and cantonal corona safety key rules:
> Keep a minimum of 1.5m distance to other people at all times.
> Stay at home when feeling ill or have returned from a high-risk area.

Thank you for your cooperation. Stay healthy!
