COVID-19 response at 4D LABS - Updated September 14, 2021

September 14, 2021

This page will continually provide an update on 4D LABS' operations and how we are working to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.

We are following the lead of SFU's administration and local health authorities.  You can always find the latest updates on SFU's response here:

The Province and University have moved Step/Stage 3 in their plans and vaccination rates are increasing.  The HVAC systems have been inspected for the majority of 4D LABS including all of the Faculty labs, staff offices, and core user labs.  All spaces meet the ASHRAE standard.  As we move through the fall, we continue to encourage everyone to get vaccinated with both doses!  That is the best way to ensure we protect ourselves and our community.

Frequent hand washing is important and it is critical to stay home when sick.  Hand sanitizer is available throughout the facility.  There will be no penalty if you need to cancel a booking last minute because you are sick, but please let us know and give us as much notice as possible.  Please make sure to do a personal health screening every day and don't come in if you aren't feeling well. 

Masks are mandatory inside 4D LABS.

There are no longer any COVID-related room occupancy limits.  Visitors are allowed, but please discuss with the tool owner or Director first if you want to have someone accompany you during your tool session.  Both in-person and remote contract work options are available.

Please be conscientious of each other as we adapt to changing guidelines and personal comfort levels. 


  • Get vaccinated
  • Stay home when sick
  • Wash hands frequently
  • Do a personal health screening each day (not submitted)
  • No COVID-related occupancy limits
  • Masks required in all spaces
  • Visitors allowed but check with tool owner
  • Be kind!

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

Stay safe and healthy everyone!

Nathanael Sieb

Director of Operations, 4D LABS
