In all labs, including Ocean (151) and Capitola (159):

  • your own safety glasses are required (available in the stockroom, along with pouches to store them)
  • gloves are required
  • face covering is optional, but recommended for best lab practices

Cranberry Coats (Venice/155A, Stinson/L106)

In addition to basic PPE for labs:

  • a bouffant
  • shoe covers
  • cleanroom face mask or beard cover over your personal face mask
  • UPDATE (6/3/21): personal cranberry lab coat, kept in a plastic ziplock bag labeled with your name for frequent users only. Frequent users can still sign out a cubby. Casual users can grab a clean/quarantined coat from the rack and put it in a quarantine bin when done. Clean coats in good condition will be quarantined for a week before going back to the rack.  Please see signs at racks for more details.
