Tim Cannella requested that the following guidance from NASA LaRC Center Director Clayton Turner be shared with LaRC Contractors Steering Council members.
Dear Langley Team,
I hope that you and your family are doing well as we all navigate this unique time together.
The leadership team and I recognize that the continual evolution of the coronavirus and resulting impact on the world around us has been very disconcerting for everyone. We appreciate your attentiveness to the messages that we have been sending out along with those from the agency. You have responded quickly and efficiently to safeguard our facilities, our work and most importantly the people of NASA Langley.
As we move into this new way of working, we will be reaching out to you more regularly. We are leveraging technology to communicate via video and will be sending the first message out next week. We will be discussing Langley’s response, how our expertise is contributing to the nation and – our anchor through all of this – how our missions across aeronautics, science and exploration continue.
In the meantime, I encourage you to watch the Ask the Administrator video, if you have not already. Let me reiterate his message, your health and safety are our highest priority.
Many resources continue to be available including NASA People, https://Coronavirus.gov and our own site LaRC SOS. And, I encourage you to reach out to your supervisor with any questions, concerns or ideas you may have. The leadership team meets regularly, and your input is a valuable part of the conversation.
We will persevere and continue to do amazing work for the agency and the nation. Please take care of yourselves and your families.
