Planning a Return to On-Site Work
First, let me say that no decisions have been made at the agency level to move away from the current operational state at headquarters and the centers. But, the questions of how and when we return to on-site work are on everyone’s minds these days as we see the curve of coronavirus infection beginning to flatten in portions of the United States and the national conversation shifting to how we get back to “normal.” 
NASA leadership at headquarters and the centers is currently developing guidelines for returning to on-site work across the agency. In developing these guidelines and making decisions on restarting on-site work, we must balance our mission priorities and an increasing desire to move beyond the current operational status with the health and safety of our workforce – the latter continuing to take priority.
We will take a risk-based, phased approach and will inform you at every decision point. Regardless of our approach, I want to remind you that if you do not feel comfortable continuing to work on-site, or returning to work on-site, please talk to your supervisor or contract management about options to address your concerns. Alternate work arrangements will be made without reservation or reprisal. 
Thank you for the extraordinary efforts you make every day to keep NASA’s mission moving forward. Stay healthy and stay safe, and keep monitoring NASA People for the latest information.
