RE: Life in covid19 testing lab and virology research during the times of pandemic - the crazy year.

Dang, I don't even get a hood in the BSL3 room.


Oh we have to book the hood a week in advance too. Plus you have to either do it during office hours or else have a buddy with you. Do you have that buddy thing too?

Oh lol I was referring to the head covering not the safety hood.

My work is 24/7. I work for the micro department. The only covid tests we do are the rapid ones using the samples from the emergency room.

The rest are done by the molecular department.

Oh haha, my bad. I assumed you were talking about crowding for biosafety cabinets. Well we do have those reusable head hoods for that, which can be used with a breathing unit. But unless I have work for long hours (3+) in one go, I prefer N95 and face shield over breathing unit.

Yeah, I’m well-acquainted with working 3+ hours under the hood. I feel for ya.

was it dangerous?

 last year
