NASA JSC: Special: March 14 Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

Status Report From: Johnson Space Center
Posted: Saturday, March 14, 2020

The protection and care of the Johnson team is our top priority and critical to the success of our mission.

While we do not have any confirmed cases of coronavirus (COVID-19) at Johnson as of today, March 14, out of an abundance of caution, the center is transitioning to Stage 2 of our response framework.

Telework is strongly encouraged for employees who can work remotely. If you already have everything you need to work remotely, you can begin telework on Monday, March 16. If not, you can come to the center on Monday for a brief period to get your laptop computer, power cord, and any other equipment you need to work effectively from an alternate location, as well as essential personal items you may need. More information on leave and telework is available on the NASA People website. A list of collaboration tools and information on VPN are available online.

I also encourage you to limit travel that is not mission-essential, as defined in the response framework.

Maintain frequent contact with your supervisor throughout this period. We will continue to assess the situation and update the status of the center, and its facilities, as needed.

Stay healthy and safe, and please continue to consult NASA People for the most current guidance on NASA’s response to the coronavirus.

Please check your email for a message from the Center Director.
