The NSF- Ice Core Facility has started offering public tours on a limited basis as the spread of COVID-19 has lessened. Tour sizes are being held to 20 people or less once a week. If the CDC tracked transmission levels of COVID-19 in Jefferson County rise into orange, tours will be suspended until levels drop back to yellow or green. For more information about scheduling a tour, visit our Tours and Media page.
