The health and safety of NASA’s workforce is the agency’s top priority. As coronavirus (COVID-19) concerns continue to evolve, NASA is taking steps to ensure its workforce is protected and informed. NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center remains open. Employees who can telework are being encouraged to do so. No employees at any of Goddard’s six campuses have tested positive for coronavirus at this time.

Out of an abundance of caution, Goddard has canceled all non-mission-essential visits to its facilities. Goddard also is closing its Visitor Centers at Greenbelt and at Wallops Flight Facility, Virginia, beginning Friday, March 13, as a means to be protective and encourage social distancing.

In coordination with NASA Headquarters, Goddard will continue to monitor the situation and implement additional measures, as necessary, to protect its workforce and mission operations.
