NASA's Approach to Increasing On-Site Work & Town Hall Transcript

"As these conditions become safer, there will be a phased and gradual return to work at agency centers and facilities. We know it has to be at a "condition level" where you really do feel safe. If you do not feel comfortable working on-site, or returning to work on-site, please talk to your supervisor about options to address your concerns. We will make every effort to provide alternate work arrangements without reservation or reprisal. Those who can accomplish their job via telework are encouraged to continue doing so."
