Dear LCO observers,
While the overall rate of new Covid-19 infections in Chile continues to drop, the case numbers in the Coquimbo and Vallenar areas are at their highest level to date.
For this reason, we will continue to operate a single Magellan telescope (Baade) through at least July 5, 2021. We will provide another update prior to July 1st.
