The Fermilab site reopened at 7 a.m. this morning. All site entrances and buildings are open and accessible, with the exception of Lab 8 in the Village, which experienced flooding conditions.

While rain has subsided and flooding concerns in the area have diminished, please continue to exercise caution while traveling to work, as well as on the Fermilab site. Please also continue to observe caution signage on roads, parking lots and areas adjacent to ponds, where standing water may still be present. If unusual conditions due to the rain event are encountered within buildings, please contact your building manager or FESS operations.

An all-hands e-mail will be sent later this morning that will include instructions on how to code your time for yesterday afternoon.

A special thanks to all staff who worked diligently on site yesterday and throughout the night to manage the heavy rain and flooding conditions.
