The health and safety of the NASA workforce is our top priority as we navigate the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation. For that reason, I want to re-emphasize a point I raised during our March 25 town hall – any employee who is reporting to work on-site but does not feel comfortable continuing to do so should not be afraid to raise that concern with his or her supervisor. Alternate work arrangements will be made without reprisal.

All supervisors of mission-essential personnel should be prepared to work with their employees and call on the resources of your center human resources office to assist, if needed.

Let me be very clear on this point – our people are our most mission-essential asset. Protecting our workforce is, and will continue to be our top priority.

Ad astra,
