Release 20210915

Dear LCO community,

While the number of COVID-19 cases in Chile continues to drop, travel restrictions for non-Chilean residents remain in place. For this reason, we are cancelling the M2FS and MagAOX PI instrument runs scheduled in the 2021B semester.

In addition, all Magellan observations will be taken only in remote mode for the remainder of the year.

We will provide an update on travel to LCO once a firm date has been announced for the opening of the border to non-Chilean residents.

Thank you for your understanding.
John Mulchaey, Polo Infante and David Osip
