Our priority is the safety of everyone at the Crick. We are closed to visitors, and staff are encouraged to work from home wherever possible.
The Crick has remained open for a limited number of staff throughout 2020, to respond to the coronavirus pandemic and to run our COVID-19 testing service for frontline healthcare staff, NHS patients, and care homes. From 1 June 2020 we opened the building to more staff, so that vital research could continue. We test all our staff for COVID-19 on a weekly basis and have put measures in place to make sure the building is safe, and that everyone can maintain a safe distance from each other while they are at work.

These are obviously changing and uncertain times. Our decisions are guided by the latest Government and Public Health England recommendations, and the latest advice from the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy.
