The International Gemological Institute (IGI) is reopening its New York grading laboratory following a three-month closure amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“As the metropolitan area has been cleared to enter phase 2, the institute is safely restarting business operations,” IGI North America president Avi Levy said Monday.

Initially, the institute will implement a gradual rollout, limiting the number of staff members in the office. Most employees will work in-house three days a week, while back-office tasks will be done the other two days, enabling IGI to fulfill orders under the new operating restrictions.

IGI will also require new safety measures throughout the office, including the use of masks, as well as sanitizing equipment and products, it noted.
