NASA leadership told employees and contractors to spend March 6 working from home as part of a test to ensure that the agency’s infrastructure is capable of handling mass telework in the event of a cononavirus outbreak.
“The purpose of this exercise is to test our capabilities, resources and preparedness for large-scale teleworking. I encourage civil servants and onsite contractors who are telework eligible to participate by working from an alternate location Friday,” NASA’s Associate Administrator Steve Jurczyk wrote in an email to staff.
