Dear Stepan,

as you surely know, there is _mutual_ travel bans between the US and the 
EU and other countries. Nobody in their right mind believes that those 
will be lifted any time soon. It seems to me that the only way that you 
could involve international help is by remote co-shifting, like doing 
some of the worker duties remotely.

Apparently, JLab is forced to run experiments for 6 weeks under the 
current circumstances. It does not sound like a very good strategy for 

Anyway, if it must be, I would be more than willing to help remotely. I 
even owe you a stack of night shifts, from March.

All the best,

We got a very limited response from few institutions (Richmond, JLAB and CNU) and a few collaborators who can take shifts. If you already responded to the call for shifts thank you! you do not need to reply to this email. If you have not (institution representative or an individual stationed locally who can take shifts) please do so by early next week.

The conditions that we will continue RG-F will most likely be the same as we stopped it in March - JLAB in MEDCON-5 or 4 and restrictions for domestic and international travels. Therefore, the Hall-B will exercise a limited shift staffing plan as we had before the shutdown in March. We will have only shift experts present in the counting room during the day and swing shifts, from 7 am to 11 pm. The owl shift will be manned as per our COO, expert and a worker. We will not use regular CLAS shift scheduling instead we are relying on collaborators who are “local” (close by) and can travel to JLAB for shifts.
>> With this email, I am asking the institutional representatives and collaborators stationed locally to send an email to me and Bryan with the names of people who are available to take shifts from July 27 to September 6, 2020. We will create a list of shifters then generate a shift schedule accordingly. These are challenging times and we need everyone’s help to succeed.
