Important Message About COVID-19 (May 21, 2020)

We continue to closely monitor the situation related to COVID-19 by following and continually adapting to the recommended guidelines outlined by local, state, and national public health agencies. On Tuesday, May 5th, Governor Pritzker released Restore Illinois, a five-phased plan that will reopen our state, guided by Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) metrics and with distinct business, education, and recreation activities characterizing each phase. In adherence with this order, we at McCrone Research Institute in Chicago are confident that we are acting in the best interest of the health and well being of our students, instructors, staff, and the greater community and will be able to resume in-person microscopy educational courses after moving from Phase 3 to Phase 4 of the plan. The State of Illinois is currently in Phase 2 and we are temporarily adapting our business operations to the changing circumstances while all but essential personnel are continuing to work remotely as we maintain our not-for-profit mission of scientific education, research, and publishing. We are doing our part to reduce the impact and help control the spread of COVID-19 by adhering to IDPH recommended guidelines. Please direct all enquiries to email:
