Statement on the Current Operations at the Salk Institute

The Salk Institute is currently closed to the public. The Institute continues to monitor the status of the pandemic and expects to reopen the Salk campus at a later date. Please check back for updates.

The health and safety of Salk personnel remains our top priority. Visitors are allowed to enter Salk facilities only for approved business and research-specific purposes at this time. The Institute is following all required health and safety measures and has submitted the required plans by the State of California and San Diego County.

Face coverings are required for all personnel and visitors while indoors at a Salk facility, except when alone within a closed space per safety guidelines. Outside contractors, consultants, and others approved to enter the campus must fully comply with masking requirements and all posted health and safety policies and guidelines. Salk suppliers can find additional information here.

We appreciate your understanding and support as we work to keep everyone safe while pursuing our scientific mission.
