Keith's 10 March update: I was able to listen in to the internal NASA webcast on Corona virus issues and live tweed as much as I could - you can see the tweets plus the questions submitted by NASA employees at @NASAwatch.

Keith's 10 March update: This Town Hall meeting will only be webcast internally at NASA.

Keith's 9 March note: NASA will have an agency-wide meeting on Tuesday 10 March at 12:00 pm Noon EST. The event will be streamed live within the agency. I am not sure if the public will be able to see it.

NASA Administrator Statement on Coronavirus Situation

"Last Friday's agencywide voluntary telework exercise was a good test of NASA's large-scale preparedness with no reported issues to the overall IT system. I've asked all NASA employees to continue to follow guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the agency's Chief Health and Medical Officer, and if they have questions, don't hesitate to talk with their supervisor.

"You've heard the agency's leadership say the protection and care of our NASA team is the top priority and critical to the success of the agency's mission, and it's true. As the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation evolves, we'll continue to closely monitor and coordinate with federal, state, and community officials to take any further appropriate steps to help safeguard the NASA family."

Boeing Statement on Employee Diagnosed with COVID-19

"Boeing is providing its full support to an employee at our Everett facility who has tested positive for COVID-19. The employee is now in quarantine receiving the care and treatment necessary for their recovery. We have notified our employees and are following the advice of public health officials. As a precaution, we've asked all coworkers of the employee who were in close contact to remain home to self-quarantine and self-monitor, and we've conducted a thorough cleaning of the work areas and common spaces."
