In consideration of the United States’ and New York State’s recommendation to further protect the health and safety of employees, subcontractors and vendors from the spread of the virus, the West Valley Demonstration Project is taking the following steps. As of March 23, 2020, the Department of Energy and CH2M HILL BWXT West Valley, its prime contractor at the West Valley Demonstration Project, are transitioning to a Mission-Essential level of onsite staffing. Off-site individuals will telework to the extent practicable while limiting onsite personnel to just those individuals necessary to maintain Mission-Essential operations. This action allows us to increase social distancing in order to reduce the potential COVID-19 infection within our workforce and communities.
