Movement

Movement of rodents between facilities must always be pre-approved by an RARC veterinarian.

Movement of personnel is to be in a 1-2-3 direction; movement in a different sequence, such as from a 2 to a 1 facility can occur if necessary, but only if staff takes appropriate measures such as showering or changing clothes. RARC veterinary staff must determine which measures are required for individual facilities.
