Step 4: Animal Facility Access

In-Person Facility Orientation for Rodent Users:

In-person orientation is required in order to receive access to a specific rodent barrier facility.

The facility orientation will introduce entry/exit procedures and describe how to work with rodents in the housing and procedure rooms.
