SSC COVID-19 Status Update – March 27, 2020

Stennis Space Center (SSC) remains in Stage 4 of the NASA Response Framework for COVID-19

Last night we received confirmation that a fourth SSC employee tested positive for COVID-19. This is the second confirmed case where the employee resided in Bldg. 1103.   The employee has been in self-quarantine away from SSC for more than 14 days and the company’s management team is working with the Stennis medical director to ensure proper actions are taken. No additional facility closures are anticipated as a result of this case.

Since the closing of B-1103 on March 16th, the facility has been cleaned and reopened today for occupancy of personnel designated as mission essential once they have been cleared to return to work.

In order to keep the workforce updated on the rapid changes occurring with our confirmed COVID-19 cases as well as building closures and re-openings, the SSC Emergency Management website will be the mechanism used to status current information going forward.  Please check the site often for the latest information on SSC COVID-19 cases updates.

Personnel reporting to Stennis for mission essential work are reminded to remain vigilant in practicing maximum social distancing and other personal protection measures to minimize potential COVID-19 transmission among the workforce.
