NNSS Mandatory COVID-19 Safety Protocols
As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the NNSS has implemented several mandatory safety protocols to protect both the workforce and approved visitors, subcontractors, vendors, etc. (Please note: NNSS public tours remain on hold.) In addition to compliance with normal NNSS safety and security protocols, all approved visitors, subcontractors, vendors must also comply with the mandatory COVID protocols for the site.
Due to the rapidly changing environment, COVID protocols are subject to change and should be reviewed frequently and/or prior to every visit. Failure to abide by any safety or security protocols, including COVID protocols, can lead to denial of access and/or your immediate removal from the site.
COVID protocols include:
- Stay home if you are sick or have been in close contact with someone who is sick.
- Perform a symptom check prior to coming to work or entering any NNSS facility. If you are experiencing fever, cough, shortness of breath, fatigue, aches/pains, diarrhea, chills, repeated shaking with chills, vomiting, sore throat or sudden loss of taste or smell, stay at home or immediately go home.
- Practice six-foot social distancing.
- Wear a face covering.
- It is required to wear a face covering at all times, unless alone in an office with ceiling-height walls and a closed door or intermittently when eating and practicing social distancing.
- Face coverings are required to be worn by all personnel at security checkpoints, including main site entrances and exits (single vehicle occupants must wear a face covering at security checkpoints).
- Face shields worn without the use of a face covering are not approved alternatives to face covers unless authorized as a non-restrictive alternative as a medical, disability, safety or specific-use accommodation.
- Cover your coughs and sneezes.
- Wash your hands frequently.
- Avoid physical contact with others, such as shaking hands.
