JLab Site Information

In an effort to minimize the risk to the Jefferson Lab workforce, the lab has temporarily suspended on-site operations beginning Friday, March 27 and until further notice. The campus is currently closed to all non-essential employees, visitors, and subcontractors. Only a small number of staff will remain on-site to maintain critical systems and keep the site secure. All other staff members will continue to work remotely from the safety of their homes, remain in daily contact with their supervisors, and be ready to return to work on-site as soon as conditions permit.

Jefferson Lab's geographical location in Newport News, VA, makes it susceptible to a variety of severe weather events with the potential to damage property, adversely affect Lab operations and cause personal injury.

The National Weather Service provides near-term forecasts for these weather events with sufficient advance notice for site preparations and decisions about lab closings. Less predictable weather events, such as lightning and tornados, usually occur under specific conditions, and these precursor conditions are typically forecasted in advance. Heeding these advance notices, and using them to prompt Jefferson Lab weather preparations, is essential to reducing weather-related risk to equipment and people. At Jefferson Lab, personal safety takes precedence over other considerations.
