This week, director Jim Correll tested positive for COVID and is working from home, nearly asymptomatic. Meanwhile manager Tim Haynes is off for two weeks to welcome new baby Ella Suzanne Haynes into this world. Since the plan was for director Jim to cover the Lab while Tim is parenting the new little one, we're left short-handed. Depending on the need, we have a couple of volunteers that can help facilitate the appointments.
