Contaminated Area – Do Not Enter

  1. Doesn't look like a place where I would want to go; is it still contaminated?

  2. I don’t know for sure, unsurprisingly, but I would seriously doubt it. The lab is very, very good these days about knowing where real contamination is and keeping people out of those places.

    I would not hesitate to go there, personally.

  3. Ah! An "oldie but a goodie!" These legacy areas have been cleaned up. The sign probably should have been removed after decontamination. If the area were still contaminated, a new "modern" posting would have been posted. However, it's always wise to error on the safe side and maybe avoid that area and ask LANL some questions?
