We continue to monitor the very fluid situation and keep our UC astronomy community fully informed of future changes. We continue to do remote and robotic operations at the Nickel, APF, KAIT, PANOSETI, and CAMS telescopes. Our COVID-19 remote operations model for the Shane allows for remote observing with the Kast instrument.
