Stennis Space Center remains in Stage 4 for COVID-19
Yesterday we received confirmation that a second Stennis Space Center employee tested positive for COVID-19. The facility affected by this second case is B-5100. The employee currently is in self-quarantine and the company’s management team is working with their medical department and the Stennis medical director to ensure proper actions are taken.
Mandatory telework continues to be in effect for NASA personnel at Stennis until further notice. Access to Stennis continues to be limited to personnel supporting activities necessary to protect life and critical infrastructure, as identified by the resident agencies and SSC leadership.
The Stennis Child Development Center and the NEXCOM mart remain open to support mission-essential employees. The Navy is monitoring the local situation and will determine the status of its facilities moving forward. Please continue to monitor the daily NASA Exchange update for additional details on other services that are available onsite.
Cleaning supplies were distributed Friday, March 20, and more will be distributed as they become available. We are still working with our S3 contractor on a contingency plan to provide custodial services. Those needing cleaning supplies can contact Daniel Zinc at 228-304-1999 or Sheila Davis at 228-304-1769.
For those personnel continuing to report to SSC for mission essential work, maximum social distancing efforts remain vital to minimizing potential COVID-19 transmission among the workforce.
