Stennis Space Center remains in Stage 3 of the NASA Framework for Return to On-Site Work effective August 11, 2020. This is in line with the state phases and orders of Louisiana and Mississippi, as well as our surrounding counties and parishes, where there is a noted decline in COVID-19-like symptoms, new cases and hospitalizations. Mandatory telework remains in effect for NASA personnel until further notice with the exception of limited personnel required to maintain the safety and security of the center and to minimize the impact to mission operations. Access to the site in Stage 3 will be limited to those individuals involved in activities identified as mission essential and those NASA and tenant activities approved as mission critical by NASA senior management. Tenant personnel should consult their management for additional details. Center leadership remains focused on establishing the safest environment possible while transitioning gradually to increase on-site work on the highest priority mission-critical tasks. As we resume more on-site work, know that we are doing so with a risk-based, phased, and methodical approach. The health and safety of the workforce will always be top priority and we will continue with the safety precautions outlined in the Safe-at-Work Protocol (https://s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/jtti-nasa/wp-content/uploads/sites/5/2020/08/11162700/SAW_07312020.pdf).

Thank you for your continued patience, understanding and support as we work through the challenges of COVID-19 together.
