Health and Safety Information for Financial Assistance Applicants and Recipients during COVID-19

NOAA and OMB provide guidance to financial assistance recipients during COVID-19

NOTE: The Administration ended the COVID-19 National Emergency declaration on April 10 and is expected to end the Public Health Emergency declaration for COVID-19 on May 11, 2023.  We are awaiting more information regarding the mitigations that will remain now that the emergency declaration has ended.  Specifics will depend on whether the Safer Federal Workforce (SFW) Task Force remains intact, how much guidance and data are provided by CDC, and decisions by NOAA Leadership. In the meantime, NOAA will follow the SFW, CDC and NOAA guidance outlined on this site. We will update this site with any changes as early as possible.  Learn more.
