Dear LCO Community,
Due to the continued high number of Covid-19 infections and staffing shortages, we are extending the closure of the Clay telescope through February 28, 2022. The number of cases appears to be leveling off in Chile and we are hopeful we can return to operating both Magellan telescopes on March 1, 2022.
We will provide another update next week.
