Stennis Space Center Updated Guidelines for Face Masks

The Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) recently issued updated guidance on face masks and social distancing that factor in local pandemic conditions. Given local conditions in the surrounding Mississippi and Louisiana communities and in accordance with this updated guidance, Stennis Space Center guidelines have been updated.

Effective immediately (July 29, 2021), all employees, vaccinated or unvaccinated, must wear face masks and practice physical distancing in indoor common areas (such as lobby areas, hallways, stairwells, elevators, conference room/meeting areas, B-1100 Cafeteria, B-1100 Atrium, etc.).

When deciding whether to come on-site, please keep in mind the status of the federal government remains “open with maximum telework flexibilities to all current telework eligible employees.” Employees who are able to perform their work and conduct meetings virtually are encouraged to continue doing so.
