***With due regard to the safe and healthy environment in Farmington, Bar Harbor and on The Jackson Laboratory (JAX) campuses, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 public tour program for the remainder of the year. We appreciate your support and look forward to when we can welcome visitors back to our campuses in the future. You can keep informed of JAX’s COVID-19 efforts by clicking here.***
